Mindful technique and proper anatomical alignment are crucial to the long term practice of backbends. In this workshop you will learn how to safely bend your back. We will start with and exploration of up dog and build up to full backbend.

In this workshop you will carefully and safely open the front side of the body and find length in the backside of the body.


Jen René has been teaching Ashtanga yoga for 15 years. Her practice and teaching are mainly influenced by Tim Miller, who has been her teacher for the past decade. Other sources of inspiration in Jen’s teaching and practice include Richard Freeman and Mary Taylor and David Garrigues – all of whom she’s logged hundreds of hours of study with.


Jen built and continues to direct a Mysore program she started seven years ago in Washington, DC. The thriving program sees about forty students a morning in all their sweaty glory. A team of teachers trained by Jen lead the program in her absence while she is teaching and practicing at the Ashtanga Yoga Center in Encinitas. Jen has taught students all of the Primary, Intermediate and Advanced A asana. But beyond asana, her biggest goal (and greatest reward) is to instill in students a devotion, faith and enthusiasm for the practice. Jen believes wholeheartedly that Ashtanga Yoga is for everyone – it can be beautiful, but usually it’s much more of a beautiful mess. You can read more about Jen at www.jenrene.com
