You are only as young as your spine, so the older we get the more backward bending we need. As we age the spine gets stiff. Back-bending can make the spine supple and lift our spirits. Back-bending is a fountain of youth and a sandbox of play.
We will learn principles to make backbends safe for everyone: Ways to connect the ground with the spine--Rooting to Rise. By integrating the arms and legs with the movement of the spine we can open groins, shoulders, and the spine with an even force of energy, without violence. Using these principles ,we will take these poses deeper, working toward drop-backs (or reDining your drop-back practice).
This workshop assumes at least 1 year experience with yoga. All the poses can be modiDied to accommodate any body. You will be able to practice as gently or go as deeply as your body is ready. It is not How Far, it is How that matters.
