Find release both emotionally and physically with a backbend practice.
When we are feeling closed off to the world, wanting to change the state of our lives and what is going on personally, back bending serves as an antidote to bring us into alignment with our highest self.
Taking five breaths in camel pose or a full wheel can be the difference between a day that is steeped in anxiety and depression and one that is moved through with an open heart and trust in all that is in store.
Back bends are a great counterbalance for the posture we assume for almost every activity on a daily basis. We live most of our lives in a slumped forward bend and need to open up in the other direction. When done skillfully and consistently, back bends help you release areas in your body that feel intractable.
