Strengthen your back body and open the front in preparation for a beautiful and challenging backbending pose. Observe your comfort zone and see if you can keep your energetic heart open to receive new possibilities, even in times of adversity. Dive right into the practice with deep stretches for your hip flexors and quads, then progress through a series of hip openers, shoulder stretches, core work, and playful backbends. Close with a slow wind-down settling into savasana.
