Backbends are a beautiful balance of grounding and rooting while learning to become fluid and receptive. Learn alignment principles that are inherent in simple backbends such as cobra, locust and upward dog; while integrating complementary hip + shoulder openers and energetic keys that will help you advance toward more complex backbends such as Raja-Kapotasana (King Pigeon), Naturajasana (Cosmic Dancer), Vrichikasana (Scorpion) and drop-backs. A full Vinyasa practice of creative sun salutations, standing poses, complimentary core work, twists and inversions. Sometimes students are fearful of backbends because of back-pain. Learn the actions and proper preparation that can make backbends pain-free and truly blissful!

About Simon Park

Simon Park began his Yoga journey in 1995 with Shiva Rea in the World Arts and Cultures Department at UCLA. Later acclaimed by Yoga Journal as “one of the most influential and gifted Yoga teachers of the next generation”, he has been leading workshops, teacher trainings, and retreats around the world since 2002. His free-style Vinyasa is fluid, intuitive, and encourages freedom through self-expression. Profoundly influenced by the teachings of Shiva Rea, Richard Freeman, Maty Ezraty, Joan White, and Dharma Mitra, ‘Liquid Flow Yoga’ feels like a beautiful dance between classical and modern Yoga. Dubbed the “Flying Nomad”, he draws inspiration from road legends such as Jimi Hendrix, who said, “the Earth is my home”.
