Simple Supported Back Bend

by Restorative Yoga Poses on February 25, 2011

Restorative Yoga – Supported Back Bend

Benefits:
Also know as the “Anti-Slouch Pose”, this pose helps to relieve stress by opening the chest and shoulders while gently stretching the lower and middle back.

Props:
1 Blanket


Technique:
1) Fold the blanket in thirds and stack them lengthwise on your mat.
2) Sit in front of the blanket, and begin to lie back coming onto your elbows and gradually lowering your torso and neck onto the blanket.
3) Your chin and forehead should be inline, relaxed and comfortable.
4) Allow your arms to come out to the side in cactus pose, bent at the elbow and relaxed to open the chest fully.

Variations:
If your chin pops up and the neck is over-stretched, add a small pillow or towel roll under your head to maximize comfort. If more stretch is desired to the low back add an additional blanket to increase the height and extension to the low back.

Breath:
Place the eye bag over your eyes, and breathe deeply. Hold the pose for 60 seconds, adjusting the height of the blankets or sliding up or down the blankets to find a more comfortable position as desired.

Tip: Try Simple Supported Back Bend after a long day at work to refresh, restore, and renew!

Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same results.

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You definitely know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something informative to read?

Hello! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding one? Thanks a lot!

Incredible! This blog looks just like my old one! It’s on a completely different topic but it has pretty much the same layout and design. Excellent choice of colors!

Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

Heya! I understand this is kind of off-topic however I had to ask. Does building a well-established blog like yours require a lot of work? I’m brand new to writing a blog but I do write in my diary everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!

Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Firefox. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know. The design look great though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Kudos

Hey outstanding blog! Does running a blog similar to this take a large amount of work? I have no understanding of programming but I was hoping to start my own blog in the near future. Anyway, should you have any ideas or techniques for new blog owners please share. I understand this is off topic but I just had to ask. Many thanks!
