Simple Backbends with Joan Hyman
About the event
Get a glimpse into the Wanderlust Hollywood 200hr TT and join this public workshop hosted by our training staff.
Strengthening the muscles of the spine is fundamental before going into deeper backbends such as wheel. Backbends can be very therapeutic for the back when done correctly. Joan will break simple (but not so simple) backbends down like cobra, bow, and camel to help these poses feel safe on the lower back so you can truly feel the healing and energizing benefits of backbends.
