About the Series

Bring peace of mind to your backbends. This seven-class series will teach you Talia’s 3-step method for safe backbending so you can find more joy in each posture. You’ll experience bliss and happiness as you explore deeper movement with confidence.

Using the 3-step method, you will:

- Observe and witness your spine as it is right now.
- Initiate movement from top to bottom.
- Hold poses by joyfully expanding the front body.

This series instructs you through each step of the method, starting with a short, philosophy-based class and followed by a full warm-up for your wrists and back. The method is then applied through four body-area-specific classes: upper/middle back, shoulders, hip flexors, and the entire back core. In a final 60-minute flow class, you’ll apply your new skills using breath and movement to open the front body and safely relax into your backbends.

Perfect for the yogi who may experience discomfort or fear when backbending, these classes will help you move with more confidence, freedom, and joy. The space you create in your backbends will relieve physical and mental stress by allowing energy to flow freely and promote full-body healing.

instructor Instructor profile

Born in Israel, Talia, along with her family, relocated to New York early in her life. Growing up in a structured home environment in the heart of NYC sparked her innate curiosity about life and self discovery. She was first introduced to yoga and meditation at age 6, when her mom integrated these practices into her lifestyle to beat lymphoma. After dropping out of art school, Talia began teaching at Yoga to the People in NYC's East Village in 2010.

Talia sees nothing as external to her studies: she has learned impeccable skill and technique from masters of ballet, yoga, and art. Equally, she finds sensitivity, intuition, and insight are to be found through connection with the seemingly ordinary world around us and that no teacher is greater than the one within.

Talia has been traveling the world teaching yoga for the past four years. She recently relocated to Tel Aviv where she lives with her husband Ezra and their newborn son, Akiva. She is excited, humbled, and honored by the opportunity to spread her love of yoga worldwide and is grateful for all her teachers and students.
