This session will explore the anatomy, kinesiology and practice of fundamental and intermediate backbending postures. The first 45 minutes is dedicated to Yogamazé's signature approach to deconstructing poses and analyzing what is occurring at the anatomical level; joints, muscular actions, difficulties and common misalignments. The remainder of the session (2+ hours) is asana based to embody the "theory" in an intermediate/advanced backbend workshop. This session focuses on postures that extend the hips and spine, opening the front chain of the body and contracting the back. Through an in depth exploration of the balance of strength and mobility required in each body region, we will work intelligently to move safely through the fundamental backbends into intermediate backbends: Urdhva Dhanurasana, Laghu Vajrasana, Kapotasana, Dwi Pada Viparita Dandasana. Bring a notebook, yoga props (two blocks, a blanket and a strap) and come ready to learn, work hard and have fun.
