Open & Strong - Backbend Intensive

  • Inspire Studio 1411 Cornwall Avenue Bellingham, WA, 98225 United States (map)

Backbends can feel both vulnerable and empowering because they require an opening of our individual energy – our hearts, and trust in universal energy – our backs. They lead to greater feelings of openness, connection and empathy, while giving us a shift in perspective. They improve posture and lung capacity, while counteracting the everyday slouch we find ourselves in when sitting and driving.

During this 3 hour workshop we will explore the different energies of the front and back heart through heart centered visualization, breath-work, mudra and intention, and gentle opening and warming of the body. We will move from simple to complex, progressing into deeper and more advanced backbends. Finally winding down with counterbalancing postures to relax and release the effort and finish with a guided, heart-centered meditation in Savasana.

You will leave feeling empowered and refreshed, with tools to connect to and open the heart, to build strength and to deepen your back-bending practice.

This workshop is for All Levels (3 CE hours) *minimum of 4 participants required
