Heart Activation: A Back Bending Workshop

March 23 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

With Sonya Genel

In this workshop, you will approach backbends from both a physical and spiritual perspective. You will explore the proper warm-up, anatomy, and alignment techniques for back bending that enable yogis to access these asanas in a new and invigorating way.

In addition, you will travel deep into your energetic heart space to expand your capacity for positive energy, unconditional love, spiritual connection, and unlimited joy.

You will learn about the spiritual heart center, “Hridaya”, and it’s power activate your highest self. Backbends support greater self-confidence and the ability to move beyond fear to fully embrace life.

This workshop will include a restorative cool-down sequence and meditation to help integrate the benefits of such a dynamic practice.

This workshop is appropriate for most yogis. Strong beginners and intermediate/advanced practitioners are welcome. If you are completely new to yoga or have a recent back injury, this workshop may not be appropriate for you.
