Build to Backbends


Build to Backbends


PLAY WITH: seated cow and cat, cross body balance, standing anahatasana, camel pose

EXPLORE: a quality of expansiveness through your heart

AWAKEN:  freedom in your front body


Work systematically through opening the upper joints of body - shoulders and spine - to create the space to thrive in your backward bending practice.  Backbending requires a balance of stability through the centre of your body, with a healthy opening through your chest and the trickier thoracic region of the spine.  Feel invigorated and refreshed with this energetic yet balanced practice.

Liza Purtzer

Liza has come from the competitive world of dance, and discovered that the benefits of yoga extended far beyond the her expectations of what she might physically experience on the yoga mat, helping her to heal mental and physical blockages in her life.

“Through yoga asana practice, I love to explore rhythmic and intentional movement to cultivate self-love and connection. Staying true to the practice, I’m always aiming for presence rather than perfection.”
