Open your Front Side with Talia Sutra's Backbending Method

About This Class

Bring peace of mind to your backbends with Talia Sutra's The Method: Backbending series on Alo Moves. 


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.


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.

Alo Yoga

We spread mindful movement and take yoga beyond the studio & into the street


We are relentless about making the best yoga clothing in the world explicitly to inspire yogis (and yogis to be) to have more yoga in their life. Inspiring mindful movement is at the core of why we do what we do at Alo—it’s our calling. Because mindful movement leads to better living. This is the real meaning of studio-to-street: Taking the consciousness from practice on the mat and putting it into the practice of life.


Alo began in Los Angeles in 2007 because the founders wanted to spread good by bringing yoga to the world: to anyone who is experiencing the transformative power of yoga, to the world’s best yogis who wear Alo because it’s the only line that actually elevates their practice, to the celebrities and the fashion-forward who wear Alo because it’s the perfect street brand, comfortable, contemporary and decidedly not just for the ma


Creating garments that carry over to the street, into a life lived consciously, takes mindful movement one step further: a beautiful life celebrated with forward design. Capturing what’s trending in contemporary fashion with both the women’s and men’s collections is how Alo and mindful movement can travel beyond the studio. Luxury meets performance in every collection.
