Backbends & Twists, Dynamics of the Spine with Amanda
January 22 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm$25
Physically, they counter the daily activities that involve bending forward or compromising your
posture and alignment. Movements, sedentary positions, and gravitational forces can cause
misalignments and pain in your body. Backbends help bring your body back into balance. These
postures strengthen your back, shoulders, chest, and hips. They are said to deepen your
capacity for love, compassion, and connection.
Twists rotate the spine and stretch the muscles of the back. This helps to restore and retain the
spine’s natural range of motion. If we don’t employ our natural range of motion we run the risk of
our joints hardening and fusing. The surrounding supportive soft tissue can also become short
and dysfunctional. Twisting postures release tension in the abdominal muscles, aids
gastrointestinal tract movement and stimulates the organs of elimination – not forgetting that it
helps stagnant gas to pass!
Reasons why they are good for you:
● Spine flexibility and back-muscles health
● Lengthens the spine
● Reduces abdominal fats
● Improves digestion
● Reduces Back Pain
● Great tool to de-stress
In this interactive workshop we will look at the dynamics of backbends and twists but also how
they relate to daily activities. Bring an open mind, a notepad for notes and positive energy!
