“…you create tremendous depth and vastness in the chest through the backbends that the emotional centre accommodates all types of pressures and strains. There is no chance for a person who does backbends to get emotionally depressed or distressed.” BKS Iyengar
Backbending involves stretching forward and extending backwards, not just folding.
Backbending is one of the most challenging categories of yoga posture for many practitioners. Fear and a desire to avoid them are a common experience for many. Backbending is great for the nervous system and the body to develop their full range of strength and opening necessary for a balanced internal experience.
In this workshop we will examine techniques for practicing backbends in a safe and effective way for students of all levels. In this workshop we will explore the balance between the effort and surrender in back-bending, putting together a sequence to lengthen the front side of the body, upper-back, and hips in order to free the spine, strengthening and working from the legs and the core to create stability within the poses.
The course is open to students of all levels who have had some basic exposure to any form of yoga.
Prashant was initiated into Yoga at an early age, watching his grandpa in a headstand every morning, being taught Hatha Yoga at high school in Delhi and also teaching to his fellow University students in Ireland. Ten years later, he still finds himself hungry to share, learn and engage in the bliss of Yoga.
Prashant’s professional practice has been informed by his experience in India of Vinyasa flow in Rishikesh and Goa, Shivananda Yoga in Kerala, Art of Living (Sri Sri Yoga) in Bangalore and Restorative Yoga in Belgium (India).
However his most extensive and most recent training has been as a follower of the B.K.S Iyengar methodology, under senior Iyengar teachers Usha Devi, Lothar Hofler, Raghuvendra Shenoy and Dr. Abhay Kesti, his guru with whom he has developed a passion for Yoga Therapy.
Prashant’s Yoga practice has lead him all across Europe, through Nepal and Thailand, as well as several remote and urban parts of India teaching and learning.
The exploration, via yoga, of the Zen and Tantric principles of self- observation, self-acceptance, and inner relaxation is the driving factor behind Prashant’s current teaching practice.
