Begin on your knees with your legs hip-width distance apart. Bring your hands to your lower back to help facilitate the backbend. Instead of putting a lot of emphasis on the ‘backbending’ aspect, think about keeping your chest lifted and pushing forwards as you begin to bend back. Keep your hips stacked over your knees and feel free to reach your hands towards your heels if that’s comfortable for you. Only go as far as is comfortable and you’re able to keep steady breath! Stay for a few breaths and come back to an upright position. Rest in child’s pose to counter the intense backbend!
