This week our focus will be on prone back bends, positions where you lift the torso and limbs against gravity while your torso faces the earth. These are an essential class of yoga postures because the strengthen the back of the core, not only the back, but the hamstrings and posterior aspect of the shoulders and neck as well. We will begin with easy versions and proceed through positions that isolate the upper and lower body and spine for increased strength and stability that carries over throughout your whole asana practice.

I attend Cheryl's class regularly and feel that my practice has improved immensely over the past few years due to her expert coaching. Her teaching style is clear and compassionate and her previous experience in teaching adults is evident in her organized approach and easy to understand instructions. I also appreciate that Cheryl not only teaches us about how to correctly position ourselves, but also touches on many aspects of yoga philosophy, which in turn has deepened my personal practice and heightened my awareness of the connection between mind and body, breath and relaxation.
