Workshop backbends

Backbend workshop Sandra Botman

How is your posture when reading this text? Many of us spend most of our days in a forward bend, with a round spine and collapsing shoulders. This inhibits a healthy breathing pattern and could lead to back problems. But our backs are designed to move in all directions!

In this backbend workshop we will bring the movement and flexibility back, which will result in a healthy back and a better energy flow.
