These are the stretches I do before practicing backbends (sped up 4x because I filmed it in the wrong format and it wouldn’t fit on IGTV 🙄). I find that a strong core, glutes, open shoulders and hip flexors are the best ways to take backbends out of the low back. . First stretch is a seated rabbit pose. I grasp my toes, tuck my chin into my chest, suck in my tummy and bring my forehead to my knees and breathe. This helps me open my upper back and shoulders. . Next I do a modified cat and cow breathing deeply to allow the back to open. Traditional cat cow also works. . Then I do a variation of child’s pose using blocks. I keep my core engaged and bring my ribs toward my pelvis so I don’t dump into the low back. A modification would be to use flat hands instead of tented fingers, or use lower blocks or no blocks if your shoulders are tight. . The next shoulder opener involves resting your elbows on blocks and holding another block long ways in your hands. I make sure I keep my elbows in line with my shoulders and don’t let them splay out. . Then cow face arms. If you have tight shoulders you can use a strap to get in this position. . Swipe for the second half of the video which has bridge pose. I place a block between my feet to keep them straight and I raise and lower my hips one vertebra at a time, arms extended. . I end with crescent pose keeping the stretch deep by straightening the back leg and raising the arm, also adding a little movement by dipping the back knee. King Arthurs pose (which can be done against a wall or with a strap or with a pad under the knee). I keep my core and glutes engaged, lifting out of the pelvis and bringing the stretch to the front of the leg. What other stretches do you guys do to warm up for backbends? . . . . #yogavideo #yogaflow #yogawarmup #yogaprops #yogablocks #yogawithprops #backbendwarmup #increaseyourflexibility #flexibilitywork #igyogavideo #backbends #backbending #myyogapractice #homepractice #yogatutorial #shoulderopener #heartopener #childspose #bridgepose #cowfacepose #cresentlunge #kingarthurpose #hipflexors #backstrength #yogaforstrength #igyoginis #igyogacommunity #iloveyoga

Day 10 of #feelyourasanas #aloyogachallenge sponsored by @alo.moves & @aloyoga The last day of this brings us to a pose which makes me feel: Proud. . 🕉 . I never thought of myself as “athletic” growing up, but I’ve always been able to do wheel. My mind was the greatest limiting factor in my athleticism. I’m so proud that my yoga practice is aligning my mind with my body. I’m excited to see where this pose will go with the physical, mental and spiritual work. My Urdhva Dhanurasana isn’t perfect, nor am I, but I am proud of it and where I am. . ☸️ . Thank you both to the sponsors and the gifted Hosts: @juliemontagu @aleksic_twins @ellypse @alissayoga @salty_hair_yogi . . . . . #allthefeels #doingthework #wheelpose #urdhvadhanurasana #selfreflection #itsoktobeproud #mindovermatter #mindsetmatters #heartopener #brokenheartopenheart #myyogajourney #yogamom #tattooedyogini #wyomingyogi #yogateacher #yogastudentforlife #gratefulthankfulblessed #thankyouthankyouthankyou #neededachallenge #energyinmotion
