BIG BACKBENDS – dropping back to wheel and standing up again with Dora

July 14 at 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


This workshop is for anyone who can push up to a wheel pose (urdva danurasana) from the floor and is curious about the so-called ‘more advanced backbends’. There’ll be a particular focus on ‘dropbacks’ AKA going back into a wheel from standing and standing back up again, but the transition will be broken down into bitesize pieces, with drills and prop & wall-assisted exercises to stregnthen the entire posterior chain and calm the nervous system.

If you’re curious about active flexibility but have been too nervous to book onto one of my day-long workshops, this is the session for you! If you’ve never attempted any type of ‘active flexibility’ drill before but are comfortable pushing up into a wheel, this is for you! If you don’t even know what active flexibility is but want to delve deeper into the anatomy of postures you might come across in vinyasa classes, this is for you!
