With the news lately about how Yoga can affect your pelvis , I am excited to share with you these keys to performing a backbend in a safe way using imagery and anatomical knowledge.

Its small size easily fits into the palm of the hand, and the pebbled, non-slip texture is similar to a basketball. Additionally, the ball is filled with water to provide extra weight for strength and toning during movement exercise.
