A Sweet and Powerful Practice for the Upper Body

July 29, 2015    BY Lauren Toolin

Join Lauren Toolin in a short, simple, revitalizing backbend practice that takes you to a delightful place rather than one that emphasizes pushing and aggression.

In this class, which features a host of wonderful backbends (prone boat, bridge, camel, balancing bow, and more), you'll learn to anchor yourself with your breath as you expand into each pose—slowly, softly, and sweetly. 

Props: 1 blanket, 2 blocks

Audio and video downloads are available for Digital Members.
