Back II The Basics
Back II The Basics
This e-book has what you need to know when it comes to backbends. Backbends when practiced for the first time, can bring strong emotions that many students haven’t experienced before. They require us to open our chest with no protection. This causes many to panic because the body’s natural response to danger is to curl in and protect our most valuable part- our heart. On many occasions students will try to exceed their limits when practicing backbends instead of allowing their bodies to take them to the pose. They must keep in mind that flexibility in the spine is a journey, not a destination.
Many of you know I started my yoga journey in January 2013 when I saw the scorpion pose on IG and I safely accomplished the full form of this intense backbend inversion in 10 months. I had no prior experience with yoga and I was confused on how to properly practice backbends. So I created this guide to help many of you work on your backbends and advance safely with practice and avoid injuries.
This e-book has over 100 pages of backbend illustrations. This is what it includes:
🔹Introduction to backbends: Categories of backbends, alignment, injury prevention, counter poses and restoration, how to use props...etc.
🔹Nine Detailed chapters of the backbend family explaining the steps with props, their benefits, cautions and modifications.
🔹A chapter explaining how to create your sequence with four illustrated examples of backbend sequences.
🔹Pose index explaining all the poses mentioned in the e-book with their benefits and what body area they target.
🔹Frequently asked questions by students from my classes and social media community.
My hope is that this e-book will provide you with enough information to get you to practice backbends safely and correctly.
