Class Description: 

This class is all about exploring backbends, from the gentle in sphinx pose (salamba bhujangasana) and cobra (bhujangasana), to the more challenging in upward facing dog (urdhvamukha shvanasana) and camel pose (ustrasana). Anastasia's care and attention help you move into the more challenging poses with stability and awareness, while balancing them with the best counter poses to keep you back feeling strong, healthy and relaxed.

I always shy away from backbends. I will continue to revisit this class until they are easy for me. Thanks again.

By the end, I felt “I can do this!”

I am glad - it is definitely one of the challenges of teaching yoga is to know how much or how little to talk :)
