ATT 541: Forward Bends

Forward bends provide radical and integrated transformations. This course first develops your mastery of advanced forward bends and then turns those forward bends upside down for more challenging poses – advanced inversions. These poses combine with your continued study of the Shiva Sutras to take you into the yogic experience of surrender. 

More than any other practices, forward bends and inversions give an interwoven body-mind-emotion-consciousness experience that radically alters your understanding of the ultimate attainment that yoga offers.

 “Dive deeper.  Always dive deeper — each course is an exponential expansion of what has come before.”

 Text studied: Shiva Sutras with commentary by Swami Nirmalananda
