Camel

A classic backbend, Camel also helps open tight shoulders.

  • From Revolved Pigeon, untwist the torso, plant your palms on the mat in front of you, and step your left knee forward, coming to stand on the shins. Make sure the knees are hip-width distance apart.
  • Lean back and place your hands on your heels, arching back, and allowing the head to fall between the shoulder blades.
  • Continue to press the hips forward, enjoying this pose for five breaths.
