This session is based on an early backbend sequence that we used to practice with Dona Holleman, which in turn was taken from a practice Dona got from Guruji in the late 60s.
It is no longer as extensive as it was then, and Pixie has added some preparatory or “baby” backbends as they offer a good way to connect to the various parts of a now stiffer and older practitioner. It is a challenging, uplifting, and very satisfying practice to do.
