In this next installment of the Inflexible Yogis workshop we will focus on targeting the muscles that will allow more flexibility for backbends, aka heart openers. Prior knowledge for backbends are not required and being able to do a wheel/urdhva Dhanurasana is the not required. If you already have a backbend in your yoga practice, you will learn how to protect your spine and shoulders while in your backband. If you are hypermobile, you will gain tips in how to activate muscles to prevent overstretching and future joint injuries.
We will give you the tools to develop a practice in prepping for backbends and infuse it into your own practice, whether you can do it already or not.
We will have a 90 min vinyasa flow and break it up into different modules to understand:
*Learn more about the anatomy of our shoulders, hip flexors and spine.
*Learn the difference about Active and Passive stretching.
*Add PNF stretching into your asana positions.
(Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) is an advanced form of flexibility training, which involves both the stretching and contracting of the muscle group being targeted. PNF stretching is one of the most effective forms of stretching for improving flexibility and increasing range of motion.)
*Create Elasticity, Plasticity, and Viscoelasticity in your Myofascial system.
Class taught in English.
