Opening the Heart – Backbending Workshop with Elly – 13th Feb
We spend most of our day in a forward bending position, shoulders and back rounded forwards. As a consequence the muscles in our back lengthen and weaken and the muscles in the front of the body over contract. It’s a position that re-enforcers a feeling of closing inwards.
A healthy Spine needs to be flexible in all directions. We need to try a find a balance by bringing backbends into our daily lives. Practicing backbends will help to strengthen the back and re-align the Spine. On an emotional level, backbends help to increase confidence, compassion and openness.
This workshop is suitable for all levels as we will work with a variety of different backbends at different levels.
