Backbend with Wall Practice
Doing yoga at the wall can benefit your practice in myriad ways. For one thing, it can take the weight-bearing component out of asanas, which can be a godsend if you have a wrist or shoulder injury. The wall can also serve as a point of contact for refining your own alignment (consider, for instance, sitting with your back against the wall to maintain a tall meditation posture). Additionally practicing at a wall can assuage our fear in certain asanas, such as drop backs—knowing something is there to “catch” you can be comforting.
A wall-supported practice can also provide inspiration when asana begins to feel stale and dull. In the simplest of terms, it can be therapeutic, creative, and fun. Using a wall can make poses easier, and it can also turn up the volume on some poses, making them more challenging.
