Category: Backbends

Backbends have an incredible amount of benefits to the body and mind. Practice of backbends relieves tension stored in the muscles, opens our hips and boosts our energy levels. They stretch and strengthen our legs and lower back. The flow of blood is increased from opening and stretching the chest, joints are loosened, and ligaments of the knees/ankles become realigned.
