Here are some easy yoga movements and stretches that will help your back open. I like to do these in the mornings before I start my yoga practice when I feel tight before the practice or in the afternoon if I go for a long walk or a bike ride and my hips feel tight. When doing these movements pay careful attention to the technique and build both the strength and flexibility to support healthy deep backbends in yoga.

Equipment

Practice on a yoga mat.
