This is a 60 minute Vinyasa flow yoga class focused on backbends for intermediate and strong beginner students. We work towards a peak pose – Wheel Pose (Urdhva Dhanurasana). Don’t worry if wheel pose is not part of your yoga practice, I offer many modifications throughout the class. You will still reap the benefits of a strong and mindful flow in this well-balanced sequence of backbends, forward folds, twists, side stretches, hip openers, and balance poses. Improve your strength, flexibility, balance, and mental focus. We end with 5 minutes of Savasana then close the practice together.
I recommend having 1 or 2 blankets for padding the knees if you have sensitive knees or if your mat does not offer enough cushioning. A smaller screen will appear to show you how to use the blanket and how to modify other poses.
“This was a wonderful practice. I have been doing yoga for almost a year and I realized today just how strong my practice has made me. I was able to push up fully into wheel pose (twice) and hold it. Now to get strong enough to do the variations :-). I know the next part will take time, but I feel great! TFS.” – mrsfruity76
“I love this flow. At the end, when you instructed for us to let go in Savasana, I started to get a little teary. For me it was letting go of controlling my emotions; instead of keeping me calm I just let them flow and it was wonderful.Thank you for this flow, I’m definitely sharing it on social media!!” – Andrew Jovanovic
“This practice was such a good balance of strength and relaxation. I had an intense workout yesterday and I really needed this for my sore muscles. I love how backbends always help me to feel more energized! thank you for this practice, I will be practicing to more of your videos, I’m sure! Namaste” – TheExtrodinare
