This Week in Nithya Priyan School of Yoga : Scorpion Backbends

Scorpion Backbends are a family of contraction backbends that work the entire back muscle chain.

This week, with the combination of flexibility work that will release stiffness in the front of your body and strengthening work of neck, back, glutes and hamstrings, we develop the movement of feet towards head and head towards feet, energizing your body and opening you up to improved breathing and posture. See you on the mats!
