Backbends I: Lead with your heart in 2013!

Lead with your heart in 2013!

Open all 7 of those lovely chakras.

I have never been a fan of backbends, wheel I didn’t attempt for years and camel makes me feel pukey. However, in the back of my mind I know that the poses I shy away from are the ones I probably need the most. Also- upon recently discovering I am of the Pitta Dosha variety, backbends were one of the recommended poses for me, but anyone can benefit from leading with their heart. What a good intention to set in 2013; you can never go wrong when you let your heart lead, right?  So here we go- making backbends my new favorite poses of 2013!

Here is BKS Iyengar practicing some backbends in Pune, India. He was 73!

My post about BKS Iyengar here.

I will definitely check in with you about my heart-leading progress this year.

What poses do you need to befriend in 2013?
