Yoga Exploration Series (YES): Wheels and Bows
October 13, 2-5pm

Led by Amanda Zabat

This Workshop is Recommended for:

Intermediate/Advanced practitioners with a consistent Vinyasa-based practice who want (1) to enrich their understanding of moving the body in extension (backbends) and (2) to apply their skills of it in deeper Backbending Poses

What to expect:

A thorough exploration of hip, torso, neck “wheels” and how they create deep yet spacious backbends within the “bow” family of poses, from Dhanurasana (Bow), Urdhva Dhanurasana (Upward-Facing Bow) and eventually Drop-Backs.

You will learn:

  • Anatomy of the Spine and Pelvis in relation to Full-Body Extension

  • Physical exploration of (1) muscles that need to release, (2) muscles that need to activate, and (3) muscles that need to stabilize to safely and progressively move into deeper backbends

  • Front Body Flow – a flow sequence on opening and releasing the entire front body to prepare us for back body and back lengthening work (inspired by BYC’s Bridge the Gap)

  • Techniques in practice, which includes drills, exercises and movements, to help the body move into deeper but stable and spacious backbends

Workshop Inclusions:

  • Lecture

  • Asana Practice

  • Workshop Handouts
