I love Maty. I did a 4 day tt intensive with her last May in Columbus, and she is coming back in July this year. I am gonna be there. She is a wonderful teacher, and we did all of these techniques in the workshop, and I just taught this the last two weeks to my students. Can't wait until July!


All articles by Maty Ezraty are just wonderful!:)


this is wonderfully useful! I especially liked the links to each pose and the list underneath of benefits, preparatory poses, contraindications, etc.


Thanks. Now, I have more on my yoga list to do. I really appreciate your wonderful articles.
More power!

Sometimes our competitive natures drive us where we're not ready to go, and backbends are a good exercise in really tuning in and working WITH the body instead of simply acting as its detached driving force. It's all about assuming the shape of any given pose and letting our body open us up from there; seeking and achieving that "even and balanced" feeling, no matter how deeply or lightly the spine opens, is one of the key aspects of the backbending experience. :-D
