When your yoga teacher asks "are there any requests today" do you yearn for or dread someone to call out "backbends"? Bendy or not, adding these spine flexibility poses to your yoga practice can powerfully transform your body and mood. Stretching the muscles in the chest through backbends can ease anxiety, relieve physical tension, and restore the natural flexion of the back. Backbends shake us out of our comfort zone and give us new perspectives. We don't need to be contortionists, we just need to breathe and let the blissful effect of the backbend slowly come to life. We love watching our ambassadors and influencers shine their hearts to world through the joyful practice of backbends. Meet us on Instagram (@toesox)to get more back bending goodness!
