http://wwww.melissawest.com This week we are working with backbends. Specifically we will be working up to a backbend called Camel Pose with lots of modifications and options. To get there we will practice lots of side-bends and twists to limber up our spine and prepare it to bend backwards. We will also be opening up the fronts of our hips to prepare our bodies for our peak pose, Camel. Camel opens your heart and your throat, two areas that we humans quite naturally like to keep protected. Opening these areas requires a willingness to surrender to vulnerability. To do that we will root deeply into the stability of the ground. Props needed 1 block. Thank you for leaving your comments on Youtube and rating us on Itunes.
