In this workshop, you will learn the proper sequencing to advanced backbends.  Students will learn how to circumvent and prevent injuries, as well as how to warm and engage appropriate muscles groups while lengthening and opening others. We will explore advanced poses such as gandha berundasana & mandalasana. Learn common misalignments and adjustments that allow the inflexible to make progress even if the full pose is not achieved. We will also discuss the physiological benefits of backbends and complimentary breathe work to lighten and open the mind and body.
