Hands and Knees Back Bend

Chapasana variation

Level 1

Benefits:

This pose strengthens your hamstrings, back, and core while stretching your chest, shoulders, and hips.

Honest Tip:

It is so tempting to dump in to your low back and hyper extend your elbow in this pose. Instead, pull your belly toward your spine, engaging your low belly, and bring a micro-bend into your elbows while you press the lifted foot into your hand. This will move the backbend into your upper back and heart chest.

Now go pause, pose, and find peace!
