HARD TIMES? BACKBENDS!
GOOD TIMES? BACKBENDS!

75 YEARS OLD? 75 BACKBENDS!

Come celebrate Tony’s 35 years of teaching yoga, 42 years of yoga practice, and his completing 75 Circuits of the Sun, at his 75th Birthday Celebration.

This will be a 3-hour class all about backbends — one backbend for each year. We’ll start with lots of preparatory poses and warm-ups, then move through a series of backbends, at first very basic, then some more challenging, all offered in a sound, progressive sequence. Each student will be encouraged to find their own pace for a safe and fun practice.* We’ll finish it all up with plenty of time to cool off and rest.

Please have at least a few years’ yoga experience. Not suitable for real beginners.

$75.00 — That works out to a Buck a Bend.

CHAMPAGNE AND MACAROONS WILL BE SERVED IMMEDIATELY AFTERWARDS!

* Alternative poses will be available for menstruating women. Any students who aren't up for vigorous backbending are welcome to come to the workshop, do whatever they feel comfortable with, and stick around to enjoy the champagne and macaroons!
