We will work exercises to help you make the most of your backbend experience in your practise. We shall experience shoulder opening, target the hip flexors as well as the whole spine. If backbends are enjoyed then this makes ones practise much more joyful and also you are much more likely to show up or stay in the backbend! A regular yoga practise with good alignment/ technique is an awesome foundation for health/ enjoyment/ contribution to life. So whether you want to explore wheel, know how to get closer to locust, backbend upside down! or simply want to incorporate techniques to help shoulder/ back issues, this hands-on workshops presents an opportunity to get playful and try things you might think you can't do, or don't Yet know how to do. You will receive alignment adjustments & assistance and have the opportunity to expand and try out backbends in a safe and fun environment. Engage in exercises which contribute to a healthy spine/ approach. Opportunity to ask questions/ get individual feedback
