  • Build Up Your Backbend Know-How with Joan Hyman

    Discover the freedom of backbending!

    Join Los Angeles based yogi, Joan Hyman, for an online yoga demo - a Backbend and Dropping Back Tutorial.

    Unlock the secrets of these deep yoga poses by spending some time imprinting the proper leg action in backbending postures.

    In this free online yoga video, Joan will teach Ustrasana (Camel Pose) and Urdhva Dhanurasana (Full Wheel Pose) at the wall with the use of blocks and straps to help stabilize the legs to protect the lower back in these poses. Learn to avoid backbending from the lower back by working the legs and getting into the thoracic spine. Joan will break down the proper action of the shoulders and shoulder blades to encourage the upper arms to plug into the shoulder sockets for a safe and solid backbending practice. After alignment is set, move into dropping back at the wall and then, in the middle of the room.

    This online yoga video is incredibly informative for teachers, yogis in training, and serious students. Definitely add it to your repetoire of asana!

  • Fresh Vibes: Illuminate Your Backbends!

    backbends

    Backbends...

    I feel like either you love ‘em or hate ‘em.

    If you’re a backbending junkie, prepare to get high.

    If you consider backbends your nemeses...well, buckle up. They say there’s a thin line between love and hate. So maybe, just maybe, you’ll cross the line.

    • Don't Back Down with Gwen Lawrence This powerful online yoga flow is designed to build strength and stability in the back and core. In this online yoga class, you will challenge the breath and deepen your focus. Enjoy a deep hip-opener at the end to let go of any low back strain. (67 mins.)
    • Expand from Stability: Bow Shaped Balances with Stacey Rosenberg Filmed live at Yoga Tree Hayes, this alignment-based practice is loaded with stabilizing balancing poses and strengthening asymmetrical backbends. Explore atypical ways to find yourself in Ardha Chandrasana (Half Moon Pose) or Vasisthasana (Side Plank) and even Cobra. This practice is challenging and flows through many variations of familiar poses. You will build the stability and focus required for balance and cultivate the strength and opening to create the many variations of bow shaped backbends. Come out with more space to breath and perhaps a little taller. (59 mins.)
    • Open Heart: Yoga for Athletes Short Practice with Sage Rountree In this short, beginner yoga video (designed especially for athletes, but open to all!) you’ll focus on opening the chest and hips. Relax into both supported and active backbends as you address all areas of the chest and shoulders to find greater ease, expansion, and openness through your front body. (30 mins.)
    • Build a Backbend with Stacey Rosenberg Start with simple poses that bring awareness while opening both your back body and the front of your thighs. The sequence progresses by building strength in your middle and upper back and engaging your core to bring you into full wheel pose (urdhva dhanurasana) safely and with integrity. Filmed live at Yoga Tree Hayes, this online yoga video is great for people who already have a backbend practice or for those who want to strengthen their upper back and work toward fuller backbend expressions over time. (59 mins.)

     

    There's plenty more where that came from! For more backbending madness, head over to the YogaVibes studio.
