Basic to Badass Backbends w/ Andrea Fotopoulos
When I first started practicing yoga, some 20 odd years ago, backbending would bring up feelings of fear, nausea, lower back pain/discomfort and frustration. My back was just not meant to bend that way, I reasoned with my defeated self. My legs were not engaged, my arms were weak, my shoulders were tight and my heart was broken. Backbends did not change overnight, but with practice have become an expression of the strong work and dedication of engagement and articulation that I am learning to cultivate in my life. Whether your relationship with backbending postures sounds like what I described above or not, practicing backbends is a vital part of a well rounded yoga practice. Keeping the spine mobile and capable of a full range of motion keeps us standing tall, moving well and feeling good as we age. In our yoga practice, it means practicing the other classes of poses with more clarity and depth so we are supported in this radical opening of our hearts. In this 2.5 hour workshop, we will move from fundamental to more advanced variations of bows, defining some of the key actions to support your backbending practice. Through repetition of actions that create strength and flexibility, courage and freedom, we'll move from basic to bad ass backbends!
