Backbend Variations & Inversions – Weekly Advanced Class 86

Focus: This weeks advanced class runs for 65 minutes. It includes inversions alongside a backbend sequence designed to challenge experienced students. Many of the poses are practiced with multiple repetitions. This gives you the option of gradually taking each pose further at your own pace.

This rigorous backbend sequence will be great for raising energy levels, and expanding your understanding of some of the more advanced backbend variations.
