Backbend Yoga Workshop with Snow Chen

Proper backbend postures can result in more supple and graceful muscles, strong and mobile joints, including shoulders, hips, wrists and ankles, but also help us open the heart chakra, feeling the joy from an uplifted heart and spirit. 

For many working in an office, backbending is an effective therapy. Many today are preoccupied with making a living, putting their heart and mind under constant tensions that are unable to be relieved timely, thus manifesting into a variety of symptoms of psychological imbalances. Moderate posterior stretches can activate the central nervous system, produce energy, raise the pressure-bearing capacity, ease headaches, high blood pressure and neurasthenia, just a few of the many troubling modern diseases. 

Beginners commonly fear backbends, for good reasons as improper practices do result in lower back pain. In this course, I will teach fundamental yoga and anatomic theories, use props to assist getting into backbends, and lead participants safely delve into the depth of a rewarding yoga practice.
