This Iyengar Yoga class practices slow, methodical movement to elongate the spine in prone backbends. Learn how to expand the upper back in Child’s Pose and Down Dog, and then into backbends like Locust and Bow Pose. Counter these backbends with neutralizing poses like Reclined Spinal Twist and Prone Savasana. Props Required: 2 blocks, 3 blankets, a bolster.
