Complete Guide to Yoga Backbends
Whether you’re a beginner, seasoned practitioner, or someone who wants to deepen the practice of backbending/heart opening, you’re in the right place!
Backbends are among the most energizing and exhilarating of the yoga asana poses – they are the postures that create the most openness and freedom in the physical body and beyond.
Backbends are invigorating, heart opening, expansive, and complete a well-rounded yoga practice. Practicing backbends can increase flexibility and strength in the spine, shoulders, and legs. They can also be used to promote good posture and increase the range of motion of the spine.
When done properly, backbends can be very beneficial and help to increase your overall physical wellbeing. Some of the most popular backbends include Upward Bow, Bridge, Bow, Full Wheel, and Camel. We’ll work up to these poses in this guide!
In this guide, we’ll discuss the benefits of backbends, go through warm ups, preps for backbends, intermediate/advanced backbends, backbend recovery, backbend flows and sequences, and so much more!
