(5 customer reviews)

$148.00

Practicing backbends in yoga can feel uncomfortable and even be painful without the right techniques. This Heart Opening immersion provides you with bio-mechanics and anatomically driven techniques to support you in deepening your flexibility without harming your body. We will work on several foundational yoga backbends such as cobra, camel, bow, dancer and Full Wheel. We will also work toward more complex yoga backbends such as King Pigeon, King Cobra, and Scorpion. EVERY class is accessible with a step by step approach that is easy to follow and implement.

    My first immersion was at beginning of lockdown as I had so much time on my hands. I now set time aside to join every month as I have learnt so much in the last year. Backbends have always been my nemesis, this months immersion has unlocked and given me so much more confidence in my backbend practice.
    Thank you Matt for sharing your knowledge. Already looking forwards to next months immersion.I highly recommend you joining.

    If backbends are a struggle, this immersion will turn the struggle into joy. Great techniques and useful explanations will improve the practice step by step and lead to amazing progress.

    Thank you for this immersion! It has truly transformed my backbend practice and I’m learning so much about the physical body from every session.

    I have just completed the last of the 12 classes and am already looking forward to revisiting them. I appreciated how the techniques were presented (easily digestible) and built on from one class to the next. As the postures progressed, previous postures were integrated in the warmup sequences. I think that pace helped integrate the techniques into muscle memory. Also, revisiting the postures during the month helped mark progress – I was really surprised to see the difference between the first few classes compared to the last couple. I also notice a difference in my general daily living posture about 2/3 the way through this immersion. During the day it feels like I am naturally standing and sitting a bit straighter, and my shoulders are resting comfortably further down by back. In my book – that is a bigger win than I ever anticipated.

      thank you so much for the clear review. I am happy you enjoyed the experience!

    After the wonderful experience with my first immersion (arm balances), I knew that I wanted to learn about heart openers from Matt. Backbends typically bother my low back and S-I joint, so I tend to avoid them. After learning 3-part cobra, a technique that he taught us over and over again until it became ingrained, I have no pain at all, only freedom. YES! This technique can be applied to ANY backbend. As my body learned to open up (and not fear backbends) I also found my energy increased. There’s an energetic “high” to backbends that is delicious! I love the progression of these immersions: from foundation, to simple poses to more complex poses. Matt encourages us to listen to our bodies and that it’s not the pose that matters, but rather the opportunity to learn about our strengths, weaknesses and limitations. I love that. These immersion are great value for the amount learned!

HEART OPENERS

ONLINE CLASSES FOCUSED ON YOGA BACKBENDS

•12 CLASS PACKAGE•

“DISCOVER THE JOY OF BACKBENDS”

The May 2021 Immersion focuses on providing you with the necessary techniques to develop your body awareness for pain free yoga backbends. Some of the postures you will develop are

  • Cobra Pose, Bow Pose, Camel Pose
  • Wild Thing, Dancer Pose, Chapasana
  • Full Wheel & It’s Variations
  • King Cobra, King Pigeon, King Dancer

Through this yoga immersion focused on backbends you will find a new relationship with your body, and ultimately feel better on a daily basis. Another name for backbends is Heart Openers, which conveys an opening rather than a bending. This subtle difference in language is important as it reveals techniques to unlock our spine rather than bend it. That said I use the terms interchangeably since you may know these yoga poses under one or the other category.  This immersion is aimed at helping you feel good inside and out, cultivating strength, flexibility and awareness!

IS THIS TOO ADVANCED FOR ME?

Matt specializes in teaching ALL Levels yoga practices, providing modifications, and options throughout each class. These immersions are suitable for anyone with as little as 1-3 months yoga practice or more. You do not need to have a regular practice, nor do you need to be flexibly or strong. First time yogis are welcomed so long as you have no major injuries. Each class focuses on a different yoga pose in order to gain a greater understanding of our body within the asana practice.

WHAT STUDENTS SAY ABOUT ONLINE YOGA CLASSES WITH MATT

Matt‘s classes are phenomenal- if you ever have the ability to practice with him, make use of it!! He has a very unique talent of combining anatomy, yoga philosophy and his own perspective into a super intense package of knowledge which is fun AND easy to understand. I enjoyed the April immersion a lot as it was a great way of deepening my own practice and broadening my horizon, especially as the lifetime access allows you to take classes
as often as you want- trust me, you will want to take them again! I cant wait for next month’s classes and highly recommend everyone to take the May pass and joining in on the journey.

~Nadja Kyra King - @nadja_kyra

Matt’s April pass was a journey. It was more than just the physical exploration of my practice but also helped me explore my spiritual practice. It was very nice to have a consistent practice during this time of uncertainty. If you are looking for a practice to ground yourself I would highly recommend exploring the Live Immersion of the Month.
~Amanda Barnes Salowsky

Covid_19 bought Matt into my home and my yoga practice. This last month I have learn’t so much it has deepened my practice and my understanding of the anatomy & biomechanics and how we use both in every asana we practice. He has also helped in my teaching, ie asking my students to think about the foot as a tripod “big toe, pinkie toe, heel ” I never imagined I would learn so much from the immersion.
