Hi everyone, thanks for joining me in this 15 minute yoga class to bring some TLC to your spine. This is a great sequence to do to help improve your back flexibility and relieve back pain. We’ll be focusing on essential spinal movements which is great for those of you who spend a lot of time sitting down.

If you’re looking to get deeper backbends or just want to feel better along your upper, mid and lower back, this is a great sequence to do on a regular basis. It can also help you improve your posture. We’ll have a few chest and shoulder stretches as well. No props are needed and this is yoga class suitable for all experience levels.

  3. Kim Drury

    Whoa! Holding Cobra pose for what I counted as six (6!) breaths was more challenging than I realized. Great 15-min flow! I wished that Broken Wing were also included here for the upper back/shoulders, but this was also a wonderful sequence. Maybe you have a longer flow in mind upcoming targeting the upoer back and shoulders? I’d love to do Archer Arms fully someday! Yay! 🎉❤️ Thank you, Kassandra!
