' In forward bends, one uses the outer mind whilst in back bends the outer mind is silenced and the inner mind is made to work.' - B.K.S Iyengar
Backbending is a crucial element in yogas asana practice as we work intensely with the body but it's important to remember that though backbending we are able to access the deeper more subtle layers of our being. When you begin to understand the connection that back bending has with our five layers or Koshas, we begin to experience the true power of the spine.
During this Masterclass you will be guided though a Vinyasa sequence design to bring awareness, heat and mobility to the back. This awareness will allow us to delve deeper into the process of backbanding and give us the opportunity to see where it can take us! We will use asana, breathwork as well as meditation during our masterclass to achieve this and there will be a opportunity to ask individual questions at the end.
Our focus: Preparing ourselves for backbend on a physical, energetic and mental level. Understanding our own unique anatomy to make the best back bending decisions. Learning the important components of backbending and integrating them into our practice. Learning how to use props and adjustments to help you on your journey. Who is this masterclass for?
This masterclass is recommended for all students interested in working on their backbending and who are not completely new to the yoga practice. As backbends work strongly with the nervous system it is recommended that students have at least some experience with yoga asana and a basic backbending practice.
