Bend over...backwards!

In our everyday lives, we often bend forward and not backwards. This is the reason we are more comfortable with the forward bends and uncomfortable with the backward bends. The back of the body becomes the unknown part and that is why backward bending asanas are difficult. Many experience stiffness and pain, resistance and fear. But with the right attitude, guidance of a competent teacher and the use of props such as wall, table, chair, blocks and cushions we can overcome the resistance. Repetitive practice will create deeper awareness, better inner adjustments and more stability and comfort. There will be no rigidity or fear.

Counter the excuses in your mind and start your day with an amazing feeling »
