In this workshop with Karyna Kerin, we will study the building blocks, movement, and flexibility of backbending. We will explore proper warm-up and alignment of backbending, enabling yogis to access these asanas in a new and invigorating way. In addition we will be traveling deeper into the energetic heart space to explore our own capacity to absorb and extend a greater amount of positive energy, love, and joy. We will learn about the heart chakra and the role it plays in our yoga practice and how the practice of opening your heart through backbending can ripple into your life off the mat. This workshop will include exploration of the spiritual heart and the benefits of movement in the spine. A gentle flow to warm up the body and spine will be included, as well as some time devoted to discussion. Previous yoga or backbending experience is not required, come prepared to explore, have fun, and open up to new challenges!
