Where do you hold your stress? ๐Ÿ˜ฐ๐Ÿ˜–๐Ÿ˜ซ Shoulders? Upper back? Hips? โ € Notice whatโ€™s tight + youโ€™ll learn the patterns you need to let go. Cue backbends! ๐Ÿฅฐ They release the tension + help you love your present moment. โ € Swipe โžก for @yogafordharma โ€™s backbend tips! โ € Counteracting our daily action of bending forward is so important. Think about how frequently our backs are predominantly leaning forward. Itโ€™s no wonder that so many people these days are experiencing bulging disks and back problems. We must take care of our sacred spine by counteracting the habit of hunching over. How often do we do this? More often than realized...driving in the car, sitting at a desk, watching tv, reading your phone in bed etc...Backbends can really help relieve the daily stress we place on our spine. Even the beginner entry poses offer all of the benefits, donโ€™t be afraid to try. But please start slow, see how far your body is willing to take you without going TOO far. Trust your intuition and if anything ever hurts, Stop. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผโœจ๐Ÿ’• ๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น๐Ÿ”น Yoga Retreats / Yoga Jobs / Private Yoga Teachers - tap link in bio.โ˜ #yogapractice
