Backbends for Every Body Workshop with Luci Yamamoto

Jun 22, 2024

Summer is just around the corner. Days have grown long and bright. Things are looking up. Shake off any last winter creakiness with invigorating backbends.

You probably had an automatic reaction to the word “backbends,” which seem to prompt strong like or dislike. Preferences aside, backbends can be done safely and effectively by all. At this workshop, we’ll ease into spinal extension by releasing typical trouble spots: tight hip flexors, quadriceps, shoulders, and upper back.

We’ll do a combination of active and passive poses, working toward Urdhva Dhanurasana. Expect a vigorous practice, with a restorative ending. Modified and alternative poses will be given.

2-4pm, June 22, 2024, $36
