Strong Legs + Open Heart For Bow Pose (Dhanurasana)

Tamara Hickey

Backbends are essential for counteracting long hours of sitting, but if done incorrectly they can place stress on the spine. This class focuses on the actions needed for healthy back bends. A healthy back bend is one that cultivates an increased mobility in the upper back without compressing the low back. We’ll also work to strengthen the legs and learn how to use them effectively in back bends such as Upward Facing Dog and Bow Pose.
