Join Irene for this two hour workshop to bend, twist, fold, and strengthen your body so that you can free the movement of your spine and learn to backbend without pain.

Beginning with a short discussion and meditation, you will be guided through Irene's warm up sequence to break down different elements of spinal movement with a special focus on hip and shoulder flexibility. She will then show you her favorite drills for building spine strength and safely increasing your body's range of motion.

All levels welcome with an open mind. This is also a perfect workshop for instructors looking for safe ways to help their students build stronger, safer backbends in their practice.

This workshop is specifically for those with a consistent practice that are looking for ways to deepen their flexibility in their back bending and beyond.
