Whilst flexibility is vital in the spine for good health the long term effects of extreme backbends may actually be a weakening of the spine that can lead to all sorts of issues.

Remember yoga lovers that you don’t get any prizes for bending yourself in half or twisting your body into a pretzel.  (A boost to the ego maybe!) Continue reading Yoga Asana Backbending – Over doing it?
