Lakshmi (the goddess of prosperity and good fortune) is the embodiment of contentment and possibility. Her story invites us to approach life from a perspective of fulfillment and abundance. Backbends can help us access this inspiration in practice, so that we can feel our inherent fullness and cultivate an open heart. This two-hour workshop will teach you how to stabilize your shoulders, strengthen your lower body, and use your breath to fill your upper body as you move toward a powerful apex pose: full wheel (urdhva dhanurasana).
