BACKBENDS THAT MAKE YOUR BACK FEEL BETTER

Andrea Peloso - SA5PEL

Backbends are generally overdone in the yoga world with the wrong part of the back is compressed rather than the important areas challenged to gently open. This is true from beginner to advanced levels. The result is that backbends feel confusing or uncomfortable, and we have to do a counter-pose right away to make our back feel better. Come out and learn about the biomechanics of your spine and back-bending techniques that will actually liberate your spine and make your back feel fantastic.
