Back-bending Workshop. Sunday 14th Apr. 2 hrs £20
This workshop will explore back bending. Back bending is probably one of the most challenging components of an asana practice. It feels confrontational and counter-intuitive to bend backwards and yet our spines are able to do this. They have an amazing potential range of movement. One of the reasons yoga is so good for our physical being is due to the work we do on the spine.
Whether you love/hate them we all need to give our spines as much love as possible, you'll learn to practice back bends you may not usually practice all done with a softness and respect for the body.
We'll finish the practice with a yoga nidra, and once you're feeling rejuvenated you can treat yourself to an energy ball and smoothie.
