I find the use of the phrase “heart openers” instead of “backbends” to be so beautiful, and well, heart-warming. This family of yoga poses help you open and balance the heart chakra, as well as relieve tension in the body and blocked emotions. Let’s be honest, all of us on this planet living through a global pandemic together are definitely carrying some tension, as well as both physical and emotional stress. But we can’t let these stressful feelings cut us off from the beauty of life and the joy of love and human connection.
"The way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart." ~Buddha
