About the Course
Yoga backbends are one of the main categories of yoga poses. Practicing backbends open up the front body, increase your hip flexibility, and improve the mobility of your lumbar and thoracic spine. Backbends need to be balanced with an equal amount of quantity and intensity of forward bending yoga poses. Backbends will be more challenging to practice if you sit at a desk all day or have low-back pain. There is a wide range of back-bending yoga poses so all levels of yoga practitioners have suitable options for practice.
