Bending backward is not just about the spine — you should use your arms and legs to support spin. While you exercise this pose, make sure to point your tailbone down toward your heels to keep your back risk-free. A typical mistake is to squeeze your buttocks forward, which pinches your lower back.
Kneel on a padded level surface with a yoga prevent positioned close to the outside of each foot. Place your hands on your waist. Draw your tailbone down, and raise your chest and rib cage up.
Inhale as you arch up and back, placing your hands on the yoga blocks. Be sure to maintain the lift of your chest as you draw your tailbone down and deepen your back arch. Be in this pose for six breaths. Your breathing should remain normal and comfy.
