Active strengthening backbends and variations of ashtanga namaskar

We work with shoulder opening and strengthening, as we journey towards opening the front body and strengthening the back body in backbends.


Expect some interesting vinyasa transitions, powerful active backbends in lunge variations – where we rely on muscle strength and inner support -, and variations of ashtanga namaskar – knees-chest-chin pose. This all leads us towards ganda bherundasana (chin balance), which we’ll approach safely using props.


This class has a moderately paced flow and is most suitable if you’ve been practicing for a little while.

Options and modifications for all levels are included.
