Open your heart in this practice with Ryan Leier. We do not always live from our hearts. Backbends give us a chance to open up to our potential to love and move from the illusion of separateness to the realization of oneness. According to BKS Iyengar, backbends combat depression, energize our systems, and most importantly open our hearts. Ryan guides students through transitioning into these asanas with confidence using the breath and power of the body and mind.
