Backbends for People who Don’t Like Backbends at Maha Yoga

Sunday, September 28, 1-3pm

Are you someone who finds backbends challenging? Do you, perhaps, loathe, despise, or even hate backbends? Believe me, you are not alone, and this is the perfect workshop for you. Backbends can be difficult for a number of reasons. Anything from previous injuries, to tightness in certain areas of your body, to misalignment in your poses can cause backbends to be painful rather than liberating.

In this workshop we will work through a sequence specifically designed to prepare your body for backbends in a gentle, sensitive way. We will talk through common misalignments and how to adjust your body to bring it into a safer and healthier shape in a variety of poses. And we will discuss how to manage backbends when you are dealing with injuries.

As a yoga student, Teagan has been struggling with and through backbends for years. Through lots of serious study she has come to peace with her feelings about backbends and there are even days where she enjoys them. She understands and empathizes with the difficulties that come with backbending poses and is looking forward to sharing her insights and wisdom with you.
