Finding Strength & Balance in Backbends
Focus: King Pigeon & Dancers Pose

There are plenty of ways to shortcut your way into a pose or at least something that looks like the pose on quick inspection, but here we’ll be focusing on integrity over aesthetics. King Pigeon and Dancer pose have countless benefits, if done mindfully, but have lots of less-than-desirable outcomes if you are ‘chasing the shape’. Here, through a controlled vinyasa practice, we’ll be especially looking at: finding evenness, enhancing technique and building strength in your backbends.

You’ll leave equipped with increased understanding of backbends that you can apply to your regular practice, along with a set of tools that you can use to strengthen your over- loose bits and open your over-tight bits. Beyond dancer and pigeon, we’ll be exploring wheel, drop backs, bow and plenty more. Maybe you’ll even be able to hold your foot over your head; but if you do, it probably won’t change the quality of your life significantly!

This workshop is for anyone with a regular practice and although there will be some advanced poses, the focus is the direction of travel, rather than destination. Contortionists and desk workers will both equally find challenge and benefit.
