Twists & Backbends 101


Join me at Norther Yoga Center in St. Paul for this two-hour workshop on twists and backbends! Don’t think the “101” means easy. Here’s what you can expect:

Twists and backends go together like peanut butter and jelly. Or almond butter if you prefer. Both categories of postures require the hips, spine, and shoulders to work together as a strong, cohesive unit. No matter if you're new to yoga or are an experienced student, there's a lot to learn from even the most basic twists and backbends. This session will include physical practice, discussion, and allow you to see various twists and backbends in different bodies.

In this workshop you will explore:

How the pelvis and spine move and relate to each other
Ways to stabilize standing and seated twisting postures
Sustainable movements to prepare your shoulders for various backbends
Techniques to maintain a strong, sustainable yoga practice

The two-hour workshop is $35 for non-members and $30 for NYC members

I hope you can attend!
