Peak Posture Mini-Series: The Backbend with Philippe Landel


Peak Posture mini-series : All obstacles in our path are not external, they are internal.
In this mini-series, practitioners will learn the approach required for deepening their asana (postures) practice by exploring and understanding the Kleshas (the cause of suffering).

Ironically titled “Peak-Posture”, this mini-series is broken down into three parts. the splits (Hips), the wheel (Backbends) & the handstand (Inversions).

Each workshop will include:

• a brief lecture on the fundamental approach to the practice, designed to shed light on the reasons why we sometimes plateau in our practice

• anatomy and alignment principles

• a progressive sequence of asanas (postures) to warm up the body

• The peak posture and fun variations (beginner, intermediate and advanced)

• Therapeutics

• Meditation

The Backbend

From Bhujangasana to Urdhva Dhanurasana and Beyond! Both the pelvis and the heart are the magnetic centres of almost all backbends. Courage must be cultivated to align both these centres. A deeper understanding of the shoulders (the most vulnerable joint in the body), thoracic and scapula integration will guide you safely through your backbends and will empower you to open your heart. Fear is a tool, let’s learn how to us it and avoid Dvesha (Aversion).
