Laruga Glaser is such an inspiration for many students and so there was great excitement when we decided to do this themed interview centered around backbending. I talk to Laruga about her own backbending journey and I think you will be surprised to hear that although we may assume they come so easy for her, they are not always her favorite postures (mine neither 🙂 ). We go on to talk about backbending in general and some good techniques to adopt. To put it all in context (and to extract every bit of info I can from Laruga! ) we finish with a demo and explanation of Urdhva Dhanurasana and the backbends at the beginning of the Ashtanga Intermediate Series.
You can also check out Laruga’s website for more details about where to catch up with her.
