"Yoga is an art,
your body the paintbrush and your mat is the canvas"-Mandisa Nduli.
As much as yoga can bring you healing, it can also cause injury if done
incorrectly. Due to the natural arch in my back, this caused extreme pain
during my practice and I could never understand why. It was the moment I did
backbends correctly, that I found complete healing and continue to. The art of
back bending is what this workshop is about.
We will discuss the muscle groups
you need to engage or relax when working into simple backbends and into a few
deep ones. We will work on movement, basic stretches for different body
parts that affect back bending the most. Back bending is about trust, about
letting go and finding healing in the body. We therefore need to work on the
breathing needed to get deeper into postures as well as, working into a healing
meditation that will be an important part of this workshop.
is for all levels of fitness and for those who struggle to bend backwards with
ease. It's also for those who have lower back pains whether you are a novice or
an expert. We can all learn something new by going back to basics.
