Saturday: 8-10 Mysore Practice

13:00-15:00 INTEGRATED BACKBENDING🔷 2 HOUR

BACKBENDS ARE PERHAPS THE MOST IMPORTANT POSTURES TO COUNTER THE STRESSES AND ACTIVITIES OF MODERN LIFE. THEY ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT AND OFTEN THE MOST DAUNTING. WHEN LEARNING AND PRACTICING PRIMARY SERIES, A PRACTICE OF MAINLY FORWARD BENDS AND TWISTS, IT CAN SEEM LIKE A CRUEL JOKE TO THEN ONTOP OFF AN ALREADY CHALLENGING PRACTICE END WITH A ROUND OF BACKWARD BENDING. BACKBENDS CAN FEEL EXHAUSTING AND IMPOSSIBLE WHEN WE FIRST LEARN THEM. WE WILL EXPLORE THE POSTURES IN PRIMARY SERIES THAT WILL LEAD TO THE MOST PLEASANT BACKBENDING EXPERIENCE POSSIBLE.
IN THIS WORKSHOP, WE WILL EXPLORE WAYS TO WORK WITH BACKBENDS THAT WILL FOCUS ON HOW TO BUILD OPENESS IN THE FRONT SIDE OF THE BODY, OPEN YOUR HIIPS AND SHOULDERS AND INSPIRE OVERALL STRENGTH, MAKING THE COMMON SORE BACK A THING OF THE PAST. WE WILL LOOK AT SOME ALIGNMENT PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICES THAT CAN FOREVER TAKE THE PAINFUL AND UNCOMFORTABLE ASSOCIATIONS WITH THE LOWER BACK AND TRANSFORM THEM INTO THE EXILLERATING EXPERIENCE THEY CAN BE. THOUGH STRENGTH IS NOT OFTEN ASSOCIATED WITH DEEP BACKBENDS, AND MORE FLEXIBLILITY IS EMPHASIZED, YOU WILL WALK AWAY WITH A NEW UNDERSTANDING OF THE IMPORTANT ROLE STRENGTH PLAYS IN YOUR BACKBENDS AND OVER-ALL HEALTH OF YOUR SPINE. COMPOUND THAT WITH GOOD FORM AND YOU WILL GAIN SOME NEW INSIGHTS INTO THE POWER OF DEEP BACKBENDS. PRACTICES AND A DEMONSTRATION WILL BE INCLUDED TO GUIDE YOU TO EVENTUALLY STAND AND DROP BACK FROM URDHVA DHANURASANA ON YOUR OWN.

Sunday :8-10:00 Mysore Practice

LESS TALK MORE ACTION. WANT TO DO A WORKSHOP THAT WILL CHALLENGE EVERY PART OF YOUR PHYSICAL BEING WITHOUT GETTING TOO HEADY ABOUT IT. THIS IS A PURE WORKOUT INCLUDING EXERCISES THAT I HAVE USED TO DEVELOP STRENGTH, SKILLS, AND CONTROL FOR SOME OF THE MORE CHALLENGING VINYASAS IN THE ASHTANGA SYSTEM. PEOPLE ALWAYS ASK, “IS THERE ANYTHING I CAN DO TO GET STRONGER AT JUMP BACKS?” THE ANSWER IS “YES! YOU CAN TAKE THIS CLASS”
WHAT TO BRING: MAKE SURE YOU HAVE SOCKS, A HAND TOWEL OR BANDANA, AND WATER.

30 euros per class, 100 euros whole workshop.
