Yin Yoga – Seal Pose


In my first Yin Yoga Back Bend post Yin Yoga-Sphinx Pose I go into a lot more detail about why back bends are so important for the health of our spine, especially for western bodies, since we tend to spend way to much time sitting in chairs. If you haven’t read that post check it out before exploring the noticeably deeper back bend of Seal Pose.

I would recommend practicing lower back bends like Sphinx and it’s variations and getting comfortable with those before trying Seal pose. For those of you who are ready to take it a bit higher, deepening the curve in the lower back allow me to introduce Seal Pose.

My favourite pose exposed! I just love how it feels to slowly come out of that pose after 5 minutes and rest while feeling my back say “Ahhhhhh”.

Hey Pete! You are a poet and didn’t know it! It’s one of my top 3 poses as well 🙂
