Living with Your Spine in Backbends
Sat Nov 7, 2015, 2pm – 5pm
The natural curves of the spine allow for easy mobility in the neck, shoulders, arms and legs, while providing support for the internal organs. Over the years, these curves often become either exaggerated or diminished: the lumbar spine sways and thoracic spine rounds – or both. Many people think they shouldn’t – or can’t – do backbends because of pain or discomfort. You can, if you learn how to do them intelligently.
Your body is pliable and will adapt to whatever shape you frequently assume. This is a good thing! For you can restore your spine’s natural curves and build a new body once you understand and apply techniques that work for you. In this way, backbends can be therapeutic by helping to restore the natural curves of the spine.
In this workshop we’ll review several different kinds of back pain and their symptoms, learn how to appease and avoid pain, and how to regain strength and health while we practice to prepare for sage backbends. What works for one kind of back pain or body type may be counter-indicated for another. Be a wise yoga student!
All levels are welcome.
