Summer is here, immerse yourself into a backbend workshop with Nicola at Purna Yoga Helsinki.
Wish to have greater mobility in your spine? Feel freedom when breathing? Nourish your internal organs? Increase the bliss in your heart?
Backbends are the crown jewels of asana, physically they are invigorating and reverse the aging process of the spine, energetically they bring you from the past into the present and help alleviate despair.
When done safely, backbends will give you all the benefits described above and many more.
All levels of practitioners welcome!

Each labour and birth is unique. Without creating expectations, in this course you will learn how to gain confidence for a positive unfolding of your birth.
To support the birthing process the pelvis needs to be opened to its maximum to allow the baby to pass through. Ease of movement and certain positions will facilitate this opening with the support of the partner. We will practice different birthing positions and learn how to use the breath effectively and for best results. The couple will be taught how to use sound to stimulate the labour and help to relax. Useful tips for the birthing partner are offered so he can be of natural assistance.
You will gain
Understanding of the baby’s birth journey through the pelvis and the psychosomatic mechanisms for releasing positive birth hormones
Ease of movement to make full use of gravity
Effective use of breath and sound
Relaxing through contractions and between contractions
Releasing birthing muscles and perineum to make way for the baby and stretch gently without fear
Birthing breathing. Creating a body memory for ‘exhale pushing’, or ‘birthing lightly’ without strain
Transforming fear into calm power in the transition to motherhood, using yoga resources to tap into the inner body wisdom accessible to all women
Group of 3 – 5 couples, 85€ per couple
For 2 couples, 105€ per couple
Private for 1 couple, 120€
