This is one of these postures that didn't make sense to me when I first started practicing it. I can still remember the feeling of wondering if I was doing it safely to prevent damage to my knees. Now after many years of practice I can say that Bhekasana is not only a safe posture, but also a therapeutic one. With careful internal rotation of the thighs this backbend posture helps to release the sacrum, the piriformis and allows the lower and middle back to lengthen and strengthen. It also helps elongate the quadriceps and psoas muscle. One of the greatest difficulties that many students experience in this posture is the ability to have the chest lifted while pressing firmly down on the feet. Over time you'll find the perfect balance!

Daylene Christensen is demonstrating at Miami Life Center where you can find her teaching regularly (http://miamilifecenter.com/). Find out more about Daylene here:
