Silks - Back Balance: Stages of Surrender w/ Dara Minkin

$50Purchase required to enroll

Photographer: @annaciconephotography

April 19: Sunday 11A-12:30P

Active backbends are difficult to breathe in. This is not a put-your-foot-on-your-head kind of workshop. We will work on skills to help you become comfortable with hanging from your low back. This workshop will focus on warm ups that promote spinal flexibility and rotation through fascial release and spinal torsion.

Feels safe working in backbends, happy low back health, inverts in air.

Covered low back and knees.
