100-Hour Backbends Intensive

Cultivate control and stability.

Discover and explore the different muscular efforts needed in the shoulder, spine, and front body to actively go into backbends, and how to come out of these poses with stability.

Learn techniques to release the front body and other muscles that may inhibit your backbending range of motion and strengthen the muscles that you’ll need to stabilize to move into deeper backbends safely and progressively.
