Romance your soul and surrender your heart! The practice of backbends are about moving into the future and letting go of the fear of the unknown. If fear and hesitation exists as we attempt to open our hearts, pain will definitely be the result. (And often pain in the back!) But as we practice these postures with a heightened awareness and a connection to our strengths, the earth, and those we love, we overcome our fears and hesitations and become love itself!
Scared? Don't be. In this workshop we will playfully address our fears of turning the world on its head. After opening the shoulders, chest, back and legs, we will learn proper alignment in order to invert effortlessly in such poses as forearm stand and handstand. Inverting on a daily basis is crucial for health as the benefits are immense. We owe it to the world to turn it on its head!
*Note: Contraindications for inversions are detached retina and high blood pressure.
