Sphinx Pose

Yoga backbends are amazing energy and mood boosters! They increase blood circulation, strengthen your back and expand your shoulders and chest for fuller breathing. Sphinx pose is one of my favorite backbends because, among many things, it takes pressure off your wrists, making it a great backbend for those with carpal tunnel syndrome.
