An extended heartopening practice of 2.5 hours in Openyoga, Bern.


Backbending requires courage: trusting the process, trusting yourself, facing fear. Our body’s natural response to danger is to curl in, protecting our heart- both the physical heart and the energetic heart space. Backbends allow the very opposite to happen: opening up to the world, exposing but also offering our most vulnerable part: the heart.

Learn how to get into challenging poses effectively and safely by tilting the pelvis, by actively using your core muscles and engaging your legs and feet to stay rooted. We will explore bows, wheels and other asanas with a focus on the bend. I will offer variations on blocks and against the wall so backbends are happily accessible to everyone.
Overcome your fears, offer your heart. On the mat- and thus- off the mat too.

Ultimately we find the lesson in our own experience - our practice. An extended practice. In english.
