Backbends, Stability & Space
with Chrissy Carter
Saturday, November 11th
Early Bird – $60
At the Door – $65
Backbends require flexibility where most of us are tight and stability where most of us are weak. This workshop is designed to help you identify patterns of compensation in your back-bending practice, giving you the knowledge and support you need to move through obstacles instead of around them. Through innovative prop work, careful sequencing, and thoughtful partner exercises, you will build the strength to move into backbends with more intelligence and ease.
