Tag Archives: backbends


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.
