Focus

It is often difficult to remain in challenging backbend poses like dwi pada viparita dandasana for any significant amount of time. Because of this, whilst in the pose you might experience areas of resistance in your body without the feeling of being able to release them. Hurrying these poses can give the sense of stiffness being compounded rather than reduced. Here is where practicing backbends with a chair can be helpful.

The chair offers support in positions that would otherwise require muscular effort and stamina. Rather than creating hardness, the chair holds your body like a frame, allowing you to soften, open and breathe. This approach to backbends enables you to stay longer in poses with more composure. The benefit of the pose has more time to soak into your body, and corrective change is more likely to occur.

This class guides you through numerous versions of chair backbends culminating in dwi pada viparita dandasana and eka pada viparita dandasana. You will learn techniques that will help to increase mobility in your upper back and shoulders. Clear and detailed instruction is given with the set up for each pose.
