This is a twisting practice with a specific emphasis on the upper back and shoulders. Along the way, we explore bound positions and attempt to cross reference the effort of a backbend in our spinal rotations. It's all excellent prep work for sirsasana (headstand) for those who struggle to take the weight out of their neck while standing on their head.

(Int/Adv) Kula Flow is vinyasa (or flow) style yoga with an emphasis on creativity and alignment. Classes are inventive and thoughtful sequences of sun salutations, standing & seated postures, back bending, and inversions—guided by a steady breath to tone and calm the mind. Most teachers also use bandha work to open and strengthen the inner body. (Classes differ in tone and vigor depending on the teacher, so if you have special needs/interests please contact [email protected]) For students with a regular yoga practice.
