Backbends are important. They’re important for opening the front of the body which we close normally. We stretch the intercostal muscles between the ribs and we stretch the front of the diaphragm. Both of this help breathing as we age and as we live this practice. Energetically, backbends squeeze the back kidneys and open the front kidneys and affects somewhat the adrenal glands. Back bends energetically are often suggested for two ends of the spectrum of our emotional state. They can be good for depression. They can also be good for the opposite when we’re very agitated if we do a supported backbend in which the head is lower than the heart. That can be very internalizing and quieting and reduce the Dosha of Vatta.
The more we age, the more backbends we need to do (:
It is all about our intention of doing this pose and not the pose itself.
We all need backbends in our lives.
This workshop will include theoretical studies of anatomy & kinesiology as well as psychological effects back bends create.
Join us to explore, practice and enjoy backbends! It will be fun!
