The Art of Backbending: A Fun & Creative Approach to a Lasting Practice

July 16 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The Art of Backbending: A Fun & Creative Approach to a Lasting Practice with Daniela Rizza

Want to press up into full-wheel pose with more comfort and ease? Find more depth in your bow pose, or even figure out how to finally touch your toes in king pigeon?

It all begins with the foundations. Whether you’re new to yoga or a seasoned practitioner, this workshop will offer you valuable tools to help create the best-feeling backbends for your body. And we know that the art of backbending is at the heart of a solid yoga practice! They improve spinal health, undo our poor postural habits (think: desks, cars, and couch-slouching!), and give us a sense of confidence and energy.

This 2-hour class, led by led by Daniela Rizza (RYT 500), offers a playful way to unlock greater depths in heart-opening shapes. We’ll start by opening and strengthening the shoulders, hips, spine, and core, refining the foundation for the simpler backbends. Once warmed up, we’ll journey toward the more challenging and complex postural expressions. You’ll leave this workshop feeling vibrant and energized, and with the tools you need to have a balanced, safe, and sustainable backbend practice.

While this workshop offers many variations of backbends, and is appropriate for all bodies, it is recommended that participants have a minimum of 6 months experience with yoga (hatha/vinyasa) or other backbending practices prior to attending.
