Heart-opening is some of the most effective work we can do in our yoga practice to positively affect the way you see yourself and the world around you, and how you interact with others. Whether you are social distancing alone and feeling the pangs of isolation or in a living situation with others and having to navigate multiple people's responses to these stressful times, a more heart-centered approach to your practice can offer positive benefits on and off your mat.

Throughout this workshop, we will unpack how to safely explore these heart-opening postures, learn strength and mobility tips and drills, as well as a take deeper look at what backbending has to offer you as a transformational tool.
