One of my favourite Yoga Asanas ever! Standing Backward Bend (Ardha Chakrasana). Allows my Heart Centre to open, to release the pressure in my spine and flush my kidneys. Backbends can be a bit scary but worth it.
Allow your exhale to lower you into your maximum depth, allow your inhale to lift you up and forward. Reverse this pattern on purpose by pulling backward more vigorously into the posture during the inhalation (taking you more fulling into the posture) and then relaxing and easing off the posture during the exhale (thereby reducing tension).- Anatomy of Hatha Yoga, Dr. H.
