Finally, there will be a follow up Q & A on Sunday January 13th where you can ask any questions you might have.
What Is A Backbend?
Backbending is at the heart of the yoga practice but backbends are often executed incorrectly.
This workshop will focus on developing an understanding of the spine and the ability to flex, bend, straighten and stiffen this amazing piece of the human anatomy.
When we learn how to use and maintain our spine, we learn how to age well and that seems like a worthwhile pursuit to me.
- Are curious to understand what it means to open you back and heart in yoga?
- Want to gain immediate tools for healing and aging gracefully going forward?
- Move freely without pain and get back to the active lifestyle of your dreams.
This workshop will teach all about what it means to bend the back in yoga and the long-term benefits that can bring.

I came across the BodyMind webinar while recovering from back surgery and because walking was the only activity I was allowed to do, I signed on and was immediately smitten with Jonathan FitzGordon’s style of presentation, open-mindedness to both anecdotal and scientific data, diagrams of anatomy not usually found in anatomy books, and discussions of books concerning Anatomy or Yoga both current and past. All of this has helped me. This concludes my specular take on Core Walking BodyMind

His bottomless curiosity about the human form is infectious.
Jonathan is a refreshingly wry teacher whose classes are both precise and exploratory. His bottomless curiosity about the human form is infectious. I always learn new ways to engage my body, and I typically enjoy surprising soreness a day or so later. I've watched countless students transform their practice under his guidance, and regularly recommend his classes for anyone looking to strengthen and balance their body using an intelligent and light-hearted approach.
