Build Your Backbends: Jivamukti Fundamentals

with Jessica Stickler

Style: Jivamukti

Duration: 60 min

Intensity: Moderate

Props: Blanket, Blocks, Bolster, Strap

Class Description

This is the third part of a four-part series based on the Jivamukti fundamentals curriculum.

Class begins with a brief Jivamukti warm-up. After that, you'll explore a dynamic sequence that includes a breakdown of common backbends, such as supta virasana (reclined hero pose), salabhasana (locust pose), dhanurasana(bow pose), setu bandha sarvangasana (bridge pose), and urdhvadhanurasana (wheel pose).

While many of these are “big” backbends, you'll take them one step at a time and use plenty of props to support the process.

To wrap up the experience, you'll relax in savasana (corpse pose).
