About the event

Are you looking to strengthen the foundations of your yoga practice? Are you looking to strengthen the foundations of your yoga practice? Wildlight is offering a unique posture intensive three-part workshop series that dives into specific yoga poses including arm balances, backbends and inversions. Join instructor Lauren where you'll learn the ins and outs of backbending postures safely and confidently. (No need to attend all three in the series... we welcome you to join the one(s) that yoga poses speak to you)

Backbends are appropriately also called "heart openers", as they open up both the physical and emotional body. It's important to prepare the muscles of the body to stretch and strengthen to safety support our back-bending shapes, while also tending to the energetic ripple that accompanies them - vulnerability, emotional release, and clearing energy blocks. All levels are welcome as we'll work through a full-body warmup, discussing the role each part (hips, quads, shoulders, etc.) plays in supporting backbends, before moving through variations of heart-opening peak poses. Students are welcome to bring a journal to take notes during the discussion portion of the workshop, and then we'll segue into flow.

About your instructor: When Lauren (she/they) started yoga teacher training she was still telling herself that she didn’t want to teach. However, once she started practice-teaching, it came so naturally that she fell in love quick! Her style of teaching is eclectic and creative. Whether she's teaching a gentle class or a power flow, there will be a theme - inspired by a tarot card, an animal, astrology/seasons. Equal parts deep and lighthearted!
