Healthy Backs: Nurturing Hope Through Backbends

Kristin Gibowicz

"We practice to nourish our hope — our hope for a more settled mind, a more stable breath, a more compassionate heart. Our practice feeds our hope, and our hope feeds our practice. In fact, our practice is hope in action." Judith Hanson Lasater

What does embodied hope look like? Is life weighing you down or are you walking with your head high and with an open heart full of hope. This practice incorporates nourishing backbends like sphinx, floor blow and even an opportunity to cultivate Ardha Chandra Chapasana (half-moon bow pose). Backbends energize and help us counter and strengthen our modern and chronic postural patterns. You can take this slow or customize with vinyasa transitions to build heat.
