Open Your Heart: A Journey into Backbends

With Nicole Roy

Back-bends require flexibility and strength, but they also require vulnerability. We will begin with gentle supportive back bends to encourage a softening of the heart (both literally and figuratively). We will then practice postures that strengthen the hips, legs and shoulders which will support us on our back-bending journey. Options will be given for all levels of practice.

– Learn techniques to strengthen and support your back-bends
– Explore a variety of backbends
