Free your Spine for Easy Backbending


Free your Spine for Easy Backbending - A Somatic Movement Exploration

Backbends are invigorating, uplifting, and heart opening, but often many Yogi's find them quite a challenge. Much of our modern life is spent hunching over smart phones, sitting in front of computers, driving and other activities which require bending over. Carried out wisely backbends can counteract and balance all this forward folding, creating more space for the spine to be free.

This workshop will approach backbending in a softer, more embodied way through Somatic Movement, Feldenkrais and Scaravelli inspired Yoga. We will explore the movements of the spine with deep awareness to allow you to experience lightness, space and ease.

During the 2 hours you will

lengthen the front of your body before bending backwards – imagine more of a lengthening of the front than a bending of the back

break down individual elements to release tension from your upper-back, chest and thoracic spine.

free your ribs for ease of breathing

unravel restrictions in your neck and shoulders

understand how shoulder mobility affects stability

release your hip flexors and quads

strengthen your legs and the core to create stability which supports your lower back

connect your feet and hands through your spine in preparation for bridge

Come along be revitalised, balanced and inspired.

It's suited to Yoga students and teachers and all those interested in functional movements.

This workshop is led by Deirdre Mullins - Somatic Exercise Coach, Clinical Somatic Educator(500hr) and Yoga teacher with over 10 years teaching experience. She is passionate about sharing Somatic body-mind awareness practices which improve mobility, stability and function.
