We'll traverse the realm of now, turned upside-down in this workshop that focuses on Inversions+Backbends. Embrace the challenge that for most of lies in the journey toward inversion of physical strength, courage and develop steadiness in breath to carry us calmly toward our goal. The yoga here is not with the accomplishment of a 'successfully' practiced inversion but with discovering peace at how to consciously and calmly control our strength with ease, and identify and overcome obstacles in our practice that may present mentally or physically. Progress to open the spine through asana stimulates positive invigorating energy complimenting the pairing of these two focuses for this workshop. Inversions are a balance whether its Adho Muhka Svanasana (downward-facing dog) or Sharvangasana (shoulder-stand) they directly affect the higher chakras as well as improve our focus and concentration. Backbends massage the whole front of the body, the organs, endocrine system along with adjusting the vertebral column, straightening the spine and opening the shoulders.
Inversions+Backbends (depending on the level of practitioners) invites the intention of exploring building up to sirsasana -headstand- Sirsasana and Urdhva Dhanurasana -backbend. Ultimately you'll awaken your strength and spine!
