Sunday Workshop #2

Deep Opening: Backbends to Hollowbacks

14:00pm - 17:30pm

Backbends are challenging for most of us, and adding a backbend to an inversion may seem impossible. But, surprisingly, inverted backbends, like scorpion handstands and hollowbacks, can be easier to balance than a straight handstand. Our focus begins on establishing a healthy backbend practice by understanding the anatomy of the spine, hips, shoulders, and related muscles. Then, after exploring new backbend techniques and tools for the practice, we take it inverted, first playing with scorpion handstand and hollowback drills against the wall and then with a spotter.
