Preparation posture: Before practicing the backboard pose, you can first practice the following posture to prepare the body for a bow position, lying prone and resting on the mat, bending your knees, turning your arms inward and backward.

Grasp the instep/ankle with both hands from the outside of the instep, and use the force of your calves to move the entire chest backwards and upwards, forming a “bow” shape.

Enter in a table style mountain sitting posture, tilt your body slightly backwards, open your hands shoulder width apart, and place them directly below your shoulders, with your fingertips facing forward, and your five fingers open to press the ground.

Bend your knees close to your hips, open your feet the same width as your hips, place your feet flat on the ground, point your toes straight ahead, exhale, and lift your hips up until the front of your body is completely parallel to the ground from head to knee.

It’s like a flat table.

Maintain uniform breathing for 5 times, exhale to relax the buttocks downwards, return to the sitting position, adjust 2 breaths, enter the pose again, exit the pose to relax and rest.

Start with the cane pose and straighten your legs in front of you.

Place your hand about six inches behind your buttocks, point your fingertips towards your toes, and then firmly press your palm into the ground.

Tighten your thighs inward and pull your abdomen up and back.

Take a deep breath, lift the pelvis as high as possible, and maintain chin adduction.

Strive to straighten your legs and reach your toes to the floor.

Raise your chest.

Maintain at least five breaths.

Then return to cane pose.

If lowering the head backwards can cause discomfort, align it with the spine.

If it is difficult to modify or replace the backboard posture, you can choose the following posture to replace the bridge table posture.

Key points: the four corners of the hand touch the ground downwards.

Activate leg muscles through the heel of the foot.

Keep your chest open and open your shoulders back and forth
