This week in Nithya Priyan School of Yoga, we’re working on Bow Backbends. Bow pose, and variations of it, requires a strong posterior chain activation to carry your body against the pull of gravity as you mobilize the full range of motion in the spine and shoulders to grab your foot in a leveraged or flip grip. Join us this week to work on creating healthy extension of the spine and a strong back.
