Intermediate back bend training.
To start on this training the student must be able to do SBB and TBB and get both feet to the shoulders at the same time. The heels of the feet must actually be in front of the shoulders or the next exercises will be rather difficult. This intermediate training comprises two different exercises:
Kneeling on the floor with a backbend
On the tummy with backbend
Kneeling on the floor and back bend. Being a kneeling pose any backbend will cause no overbalance difficulty so the student will be quite confident and, therefore, relaxed about the position. The vertebrae will be achieving big angular change during this exercise.
At position KBB1 the student kneels, legs apart and backbends to grasp the feet. At that point there is total stability so the student can relax in confidence.
The exercise is to move the head towards "between the thighs" and as flexibility is improved the student will be able to get the hands to the ankles as at position KBB2.
With more and more exercising the student will be able to relax while doing this bend because there is no balance required and the base is extremely stable. As practice in this exercise is gained, the vertebrae will achieve greater angular deflection and the bend will tighten significantly. This will allow the student to move the hands further and further along the legs towards the knees as KBB3. In time the hands will be able to grasp in front of the knees.
