Jala Yoga will offer a backbending workshop at its Charles Town location, 307 West Washington Street, on Sunday, July 27 from 2-4 p.m. The workshop, taught by Jala Yoga owner Christa Mastrangelo Joyce, costs $25. Class size is limited to 15 students, allowing for more personal attention from the instructor.
In this workshop, Mastrangelo will teach fundamentals of alignment and anatomy so that participants learn how to support and strengthen their backs with core work, safe stretching techniques and a review of many familiar backbending poses, including Upward Facing Dog, Bridge pose and Wheel, along with modifications for each. With so many people experiencing chronic back pain, this workshop is designed to promote spine health by encouraging flexibility in the back body, suppleness in the vertebrae, strength in the core and an open heart.
