Backbend Fundamentals - Preview

Hatha with Jason Crandell

This practice will teach you the fundamentals of backbending by focusing on creating a deeper, safer urdhva dhanurasana (upward facing bow, or wheel pose). You will learn how opening your upper-back--not your chest--may be the key to unlocking greater space, freedom and integrity in this pose. Of course, you will also learn how to prepare your legs, hips and spine for this essential, majestic posture. Prop: 1 block
