Information about the day:
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.
THERE ARE STAGES FOR EVERYONE
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 'Journey Into Back Bending'.
During the workshop, we will look at: why we work in these poses; stages to allow all abilities to progress safely; how to move in and out of postures in the safest way.
On a esoteric level, back bends are exhilarating and energising, 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 challenges. So exhilaration and challenge live side by side in backbends.
About the Tutor
Zoe has practised yoga for 35 years with many different teachers from a variety of traditions. She uses a combination of these styles in her own teaching. Her fundamental approach is to build strength as the cornerstone of practice and from there all poses become possible. Asana are broken down and analysed. Zoe looks at the muscles that need to be strong or flexible and works in detail gradually building up the components of a pose
Zoe is a Diploma Course Tutor for the British Wheel of Yoga and has served on the Training Committee for many years as DCT Training Officer. As well as running regular yoga classes, the Foundation Course, Teacher Training and travelling round the country giving Workshops and taking In Service Training, Zoe runs regular yoga holidays in warm sunny countries.
