This video demonstrates how to backbend in a way that deepens the stretch while doing it safely. We begin with a standing, full-body backbend, which allows us to pay closer attention to particular components of the pose, emphasizing how to lengthen the spine and protect the lower back.

I'm learning and focusing on bending from the upper back rather than the bendy lower back; this tutorial helps with that. Great location too - I kept waiting for a wet dog to come running up the rocks!
