The Ashtanga Practice Advanced Backbending

60 min
What You'll Need:
Mat, Wall, Strap
Maria shares a balanced back-bending sequence incorporating postures from the first, second, and third Ashtanga series. We begin with shoulder opening and Surya Namaskars (Sun Salutations) before moving into deeper, more advanced backbends. Maria breaks down Natarajasana (King Dancer), Padangusthasana Dhanurasana (Upward Bow Pose), Kapotasana (Pigeon Pose), and Urdhva Dhunurasana (Wheel Pose), working toward dropbacks with the support of a wall. You will feel expansive and energized from within.
