This week in Nithya Priyan School of Yoga, the movement to flip your grip from a backhanded to an overhead grasp of your foot in deep leveraged back bending is explored. Leveraged backbends employ grasping and pulling to result in the most intense postures in yoga. Explore them safely this week employing variations and options that give you the space and support you need to stay in the experience of heart opening. See you on the mats!
