Alignment is critical to all yoga poses as proper form is key not only to gaining all of the benefits of a pose, but also preventing overuse or injury. With the right form, poses flow easily from one to the next and allow you to gain strength and flexibility.
The key elements of proper backbend alignment are the shoulders, chest, back, hips and feet. Always warm up your shoulders, chest, and back before attempting a backbend, and ensure your hips are square and feet shoulder width apart.
To improve your backbend practice, these parts of your body should be stretched individually to warm up before attempting backbends.
Here are some simple stretches that will add big impact to your backbends.
Check out our tutorial on the inverted bow pose to try a yoga hammock backbend after you've mastered the above stretches.
