About the Event

Backbends, you either love or hate them and the purpose of this workshop is for everyone to find their own approach to building towards a consistent backbends practice. Join me on Sunday 20th September as we will dive deeper into an exploration of these "heart-openers" in a safe and supported way. We will learn how to benefit from the use of props and what we need to prepare in our yoga sequence before starting a backbends practice. By the end of the workshop you will have the tools and knowledge to introduce these postures in your practice in a safe and correct alignment. 

As we will be working with opening the chest area, we will explore a few Pranayama techniques to help you restore energy in the body and we will finish the workshop with a guided Yoga Nidra session.

Why backbends?

Because we have a tendency to skip some of these poses thinking that our spine can't take it or we think we are just not flexibile enough. We'll yoga isn't about how flexible we are, yoga is about the effort you put towards your final goal and the things your learn on the way. Backbends are a healthy way of maintaining good posture, spine mobility and flexibility, they stretch the abdominal muscles and energise the body.

We will learn to use Pranayama - breathing techniques- to facilitate the flow of Prana - energy - in the body and finish our workshop with 20 min of Yoga Nidra inviting deep rest into our bodies and activating cellular repair.

The workshop will start at 11:30 am and finish at 2:30 pm followed by lunch at the beautiful cafe inside the spa. Lunch is optional, so please mention when booking whether you'd like to stay and have lunch with us.

£45-lunch included

£35-no lunch

Please make sure you bring your own mats and if you do have yoga props I invite you to bring them along (yoga blocks and belts). We will have props at hand, but during these times it is always better to have your own. Spaces are limited due to social distancing regulations so please make sure you get in touch to book your spot.

Looking forward to holding space for you in the wonderful studio at Elysium Beauty in Bassingbourne.
