Backbends Workshops with Katharina

October 7 @ 2:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Foundations to Backbends: Backbends 101 Workshop with Katharina

The spine is Yoga.

 

This is a beginners friendly backbending workshop designed towards not only deepening your backbend journey, but deepening your knowledge of the spine in order to guide you confidently into your backbend journey.

 

This workshop will take on an alignment-based approach with a hint of anatomy. We first begin by covering the basic anatomy of the spine – bringing awareness to important areas in the spine that we all should be familiar when it comes to movement and body. In preparation for backbending, we will condition the body by strengthening and stabilising the spine for students to experience fundamental backbending principles in their own bodies through various asanas. Thereafter, the progressive backbending practice will begin, exploring all options: supported, modified, and full backbend inversion.

 

This workshop holds a safe space to learn and explore your backbends with confidence and with modifications. It is both beginner and intermediate friendly!

Progression to Backbends: Journey to Scorpion Workshop with Katharina

 

A dynamic and progressive workshop that delves you deeper into your backbending asana practice through length and extension.

 

This workshop takes on an intermediate level approach. Utilizing the concept of length and extension, a unique backbending sequence is developed to guide students into a better understanding of their range of mobility of the spine. Through progressive sequencing, advanced asanas will be introduced in all asana forms: arm balance, inversion, and backbending, leading us up to scorpion variations peak poses.

 

Students are encouraged to explore their backbends at whichever point they feel comfortable, and as their body allows them to go. Modifications and advancement options will both be provided.
