Do you have back pain, headaches, insomnia, grogginess, and tight hips?Want to open your body, get better backbends, relax away tension, and find more energy all at once? Save this for sure or tag a friend that needs it! Time to open your body with gravity (and help with that back pain). This will work even better if you are feeling stressed tight, or like you are always in a rush. This will open your chest, back, arms, front body, legs, neck, and heart space.

Feeling really stiff & tight?
All you need: two blocks!
You can easily buy them online or from sports stores and yoga studios, and I'm sure you'll always put them to good use... especially when it comes to tight chest, back and shoulders. The top shows the placement of the blocks just in case you need reference.
If you're a beginner, start with A: Level 1 and slowly progress from there. I feel that B: Level 2 is still manageable and C: Level 3 is for those who are already pretty open in the back or have good awareness of their body and practice.
If you have back issues and are unsure of what to do, ask a yoga teacher/ just stick to Level 1 then slowly easing into Level 2 if you do not experience pain or discomfort.
All three options are great; listen to body and be sure that you can completely relax and breathe smoothly while in the pose. Focus on breathing deeper into the chest as you let your arms hang. Hold for 5-8 mins.
