Join Aadil Palkhivala (either in-studio or from the comfort of home) to learn how to access Urdhva Dhanurasana safely through a series of perfectly designed preparations to feel the amazing benefits of this pose.
At Purna Yoga 828, we generally present two types of workshops: one that is meant to impart information that will continue to blossom in a student’s practice and understanding over time, and one that is an experience in itself where you leave the workshop with a completely different feeling than when you came in. When yoga master and Purna Yoga co-founder, Aadil Palkhivala, is teaching, you get both. The in-studio spots in these workshops with Aadil always sell out quickly. Register below to save your spot now.
B.K.S. Iyengar said, “Backbends are to be felt more than expressed. The front body can be seen with the eyes. The back body cannot be seen; it can only be felt. That’s why I say these are the most advanced postures, where the mind begins to look at the back, first on the peripheral level, then inwards, towards the core.”
Urdhva Dhanurasana opens the whole front body like no other pose. Learn from Aadil how to access this pose safely through a series of perfectly designed preparations to feel the amazing benefits of Urdhva Dhanurasana!
Aadil will be teaching this workshop from his home studio in Bellevue, Washington, but we’re offering the opportunity for students to practice with him together in the studio as well. His feed will be projected on the wall for all students to see easily and we’ll also have computers in the room so that Aadil can see the in-studio students. Join us in the studio or from home, and let’s practice together!
A recorded workshop with Aadil truly is a gift that keeps giving. I'm able to immerse myself in the experience, knowing that I can return to the recording and take notes. Aadil's wisdom and warmth are so nurturing; every workshop expands my practice in so many ways.
The following props are recommended. For at home participants, to get the most out of this experience, it would be helpful to have the following. We’ll have all of this for students to use at the studio.
- a yoga mat
- two blocks
- a belt
- a blanket
- a chair
In-person attendees are capped at 14. Masks are optional but welcomed in the studio. Live attendance is not necessary for online participants. All students will receive the class recording and have access to that recording until November 1st. There will be a designated demo model for online participants to be able to view at all times.
