Baby Backbends - Preview

Iyengar with Marla Apt

Prepare your upper back, shoulders and hips for back bending. You mindfully build your practice working on abdominal backbends with particular attention to strengthening your upper back in standing and supported floor poses. Learn to support your thoracic spine, neck and head so you can open safely through your front body. After the abdominal backbends, you practice chatush padasana and progress into urdhva mukha svanasana (upward facing dog) using your chair. Props Needed: Two blocks and a chair.
