Back bend Challenge

With: Sanne kerkhof & Dick Langenberg
all levels

Let the energy flow and conquer your fears!

Practice will progress slowly, so that students can confidently comprehend all aspects of the back bending poses. Class will flow following a well thought out series of steps that will fully prepare students to safely perform the back bends:


  • Cleansing with vayu and udhyana banda (breathing and opening up meridians).
  • Sharpening focus and mind with mediation.
  • Pranayama practices (breathing) to be more grounded and to activate our fire.
  • Practicing fundamental vital principles to better understand all aspects of back bending: relaxing the body (effortlessly), rooting and centering.
  • Flowing from back pose to back pose.
  • Practice will culminate in variations of the Bridge, also called in sanskrit urdhva dhanurasana. For practioners who want to go further, there is flexibility to practice other back bend asanas that are even more challenging. Together we can determine what is good for each individual at that particular moment.


Back bends are great for opening up your lungs and heart. Blockages will disappear and energy will flow more freely again. Although the asanas are intense you will go home full of energy.

Back Bend poses can be quite challenging. In this challenge we carefully build up and practice step by step. You will feel comfortable with the poses and might even want to incorporate them into your regular routine at home. Together we will determine how far you can safely go.

The teacher will lead the class from simple into more challenging poses following a smart sequence of steps. This way practioners will be able to master the asanas they have always wanted to understand. Students will be given individual attention in order to feel safe to experiment and meet new challenges.


The Backbend challenge is open for all levels
Costs: €35,00.
