Back Stretching Yoga Workout

Back Stretching Yoga usually comes from the popular style of Bikram or ‘hot’ yoga. Sometimes you don’t have the ability to do an entire yoga workout, or your back simply needs some stretching. This is a good time to go through some back stretching yoga specific workouts. Yoga is slow at first, but you will become more flexible over time.

The yoga poses involved in back stretching involve heart yoga. This type of yoga stems from envisioning the heart as the center of your body. You want to bend your extremities around your heart in ways that radiate energy to and from your heart. The ancient wisdom of yoga teaches us that we are all loved and connected to nature. You cannot separate from nature, but can draw fully on your integration and infinite existence with it.
