Backbend Workshop - DC

Bikram Yoga Tenleytown

Join Irene for this two hour workshop to bend, twist, fold, and strengthen your body so that you can free the movement of your spine. Beginning with a short discussion and meditation, you will be guided through Irene's warm up sequence to break down different elements of spinal movement with a special focus on hip and shoulder flexibility. She will then show you her favorite drills for building spine strength and safely increasing your body's range of motion. Expect to learn techniques for flipping the grip in poses like bow and dancer, and bringing the feet to the head for cobra and eventually scorpion (ah!) She will also take time to breakdown poses present in the Bikram series, such as the standing backbend, camel, and belly down series. All levels welcome with an open mind.
