‘Students often crave deep backbends. At the same time, we run into resistance, back compression, or a lack of strength. In this workshop, we will first review the anatomy that is most directly related to backbending.’


Join us as David Keil teaches this deeply insightful anatomy of backbends workshop


Who is the workshop for?

This workshop is for anyone who is curious about backbends and wanting help to find their own personal range and movement. David will offer many insights, both anatomical and experiential, to help you discover the right way for you to move in any back-bending posture.

What topics are covered?

  • What are the anatomical components of a backbend?
  • How do you identify your specific anatomical issue?
  • What techniques can you apply to your own backbend?
  • How much time do you need to spend in backbends?
  • What practical preparations address your restrictions?

About the Anatomy of Backbends workshop

Many of us spend a lot of time sitting and we know that backbending, to a degree, can be a helpful part of undoing this pattern. The problem is that this pattern, as well as other variables, can also make this a difficult group of postures for many beginners.

Even experienced practitioners often feel discomfort and struggle with their backbends. As much as we appreciate the benefits, backbending takes us beyond the range of motion that we use on a day to day basis.

Understanding the anatomy of backbends will give you a better understanding of where you should keep your focus and intention. You’ll gain important insights into which part of YOUR anatomy may need to change to move you forward as you work with your own backbends.

This is a practical workshop where we will explore different preparation techniques so you can see which ones impact your anatomy and backbends the most.

Just so you know, it’s not all about your spine!
