myheartshunger said: What would you say helped you the most in deepening your backbends? Goal of mine this year. Slowly making progress but any tips would be appreciated!
- take it slow: warm up with lots of baby cobras, then upward dog, progressing slowly. save deep backbends for the end of your practice (but before counterposes)
- go UP before going BACK. pretend there is a string attached to your sternum pulling you up towards the sky
