Yoga Class Description

This 30-minute online yoga for beginners class focuses on backbends for the basic level practice or for strengthening the back therapeutically. Before practicing big heart-opening backbends, it's important for students to strengthen the back using bio-mechanic alignment actions applied to basic backbending poses such as sphinx, cobra, and locust. This class, part of a 4-part Basics Series for Beginners taught by Abby Tucker, can be safely practiced on its own, or added to the Basic Standing Poses class. Have a blanket and strap available. (35 mins.)
