Dropbacks for Bendy Bodies (Elite Fitness, Saigon, Vietnam)

In this workshop, you will learn: 1) Step-by-step progressions for dropping back into urdhva dhanurasana (upward bow) from a standing position; 2) Skillful transitions from inversions into deep backbends; 3) Creative preparatory exercises to target the muscle groups that support safe backbending. 

We will explore deep backbends from the perspective of building strength to avoid relying too much on flexibility, which may lead to overuse injuries over time. Learning how to stabilize your backbends will protect your body for a lifetime of practice.
