Repeat day 1 and 2 to stretch the back muscles and wrists in preparation for the backbend. Repeat a backbend from day 3 to feel the strength you are gaining. For Day 4 we will use a pose that targets essential areas of the body in preparation for optimal performance of the backbend movement. Pigeon opens the front of the body and strengthens the back while, at the same time, opens the hip region.
1-downdog into pigeon
2-one arm extended pigeon
Backbends are essential to give our bodies an equal stretch and strength in the entire front and back of the body.
Make sure to listen to your body and do not force yourself into a pose. Hosts will show modifications, but backbends in general are challenging. So take this challenge at your own pace to safely stretch and strengthen the back as well as the entire body.
Hosts will post the challenge the night before. Please follow @laurabpilates and @kerispilatesroom and our sponsor @fitfitactive to be eligible for prizes. Also use #OpenYourHeartToBackbends so we can see. Can't wait for you to open your hearts to Backbends with us
