Tonight’s workshop, ‘Liberation Through Backbends’ at Chicago School of Yoga was awesome. A great group of yogis showed up including an old friend and two teachers. We played with a couple of partner poses including this one:
I stole this partner pose from my buddy, Kendra, and it feels amazing.
I’m looking forward to teaching this workshop again, it’s energizing and there’s a lot of room to explore. Backbends mean a lot of different things to people. Some people love them, some people avoid them They are exhilarating and terrifying, always leaving a very vulnerable part of the body exposed, the heart.
