The Beauty of Backbending!
http://www.samiterocks.com/. But on Saturday, she led an awesome workshop, here at Mountain Yoga. She began with a brief introduction of the musculature involved in backbending, and a discussion of agonist & antagonist muscles (actor & reactor), to make our practice safer & more effective. Then we had a beautiful practice, with almost all the backbending poses I know, plus some Q & A time at the end. We had a nice crowd here, and the atmosphere was light & fun. Sami Te's energy made it such an enjoyable experience. After class, many of the students enjoyed asking about & seeing several of her tattoos. Overall, it was a great workshop, and we're hoping to have her teach here again sometime. Personally, I got an excellent workout, and achieved some of my best backbends ever. Thanks so much, Sami Te!
