If you're interested in exploring backbends, this class with Anna Hanson will serve as a nice place to start your practice! Backbends are wonderful and beneficial poses in many ways. A daily practice of backbends can help to reduce stress by opening up the front of your body, improve your breathing, and even compress and help flush your kidneys. Most of us spend most of the day leaning forward, backbends can help to reverse that and keep our spines flexible. Poses include Cobra Pose (Bhujangasana), Marjariasana (Camel Pose), Dhanurasana (Bow Pose), Eka Pada Dhanurasana (One Legged Bow Pose), Urdhva Dhanurasana (Wheel Pose), Marjariasana (Cat Pose), Setu Bandhasana (Bridge Pose), Salabhasana (Locust Pose), Savasana and more! Enjoy.
