I wanted to go over the importance of back bending when our spines become fixed in an excessively forward rounding position. Today, most of us spend the majority of our time hunched over a computer all day. This is much worse than when we hunch over while we are moving because, we are getting less circulation and our bodies are literally "cementing" into an extremely unhealthy position.
This position restricts our breath, internal organs, and that translates to a bigger pain body and more stress. These positions are basically unavoidable, so lets go over why it is important to do back bending to reverse these detrimental side effects of hunching over. And, yes, we might be evolving back to 4 legged creatures with our new evolutionary lifestyle!
Reverses the side effects of hunching over.
Stretches the front (anterior) side of the body.
Revitalizes internal organs, including the respiratory/cardiovascular system, digestive system, immune system, reproductive system & nervous system.
Alleviates depression symptoms.
Restores efficient circulation. Remember, good circulation is the key to feeling great!

Did you know that spider monkeys have evolved to lose their opposable thumb? This is so they can use a hook like grip when grasping tree branches, which makes them quicker. They also have strong gripping tales like other primates. They may be faster, but they really aren’t the best social groomers with out their opposable thumbs. They make up for their groom inefficiencies by giving each other lots of hugs! CUTE RIGHT?
