EXPLORING BACK BENDING with ZOE KNOTT
An Online Event
I love Backbends! They stretch and open the front of the body while strengthening the muscles of the back in a way that counters our general daily forward movements.
On an esoteric level, backbends are exhilarating and energizing, encouraging the mind to be awake, alert and clear. Some backbends may be challenging but then so is life at times. We would not know we were alive without challenge. So exhilaration and challenge live side by side in backbends.
Yet the market for "I ♥Backbends” t-shirts is limited. Why is that? As back bends should be just as much a cornerstone of our practice as forward bends.
During the Workshop we will prepare for asana with specific techniques to stretch or strengthen relevant muscles. The postures will be broken down and considered stage by stage. This will enable us to give each of our students a stage they can work with and a path on which they can progress forward on their Exploration of Back Bending.
Bring your usual yoga equipment including a belt/strap and 2 firm blocks.
