Arm movement to open the upper chest in backbends

≤60 min. Get a strap or something that will allows you to draw the head of the humerus back so that you can dive deeper into your backbends. In this practice you will slowly move through different backbending poses to create greater opening with your shoulders. From Virabhadrasana 1 to low and high lunges to salambhasana, dhanurasana, setu bhanda sarvangasana, to urdhva dhanurasana. You'll find that the combination of backbend poses that provide greater flexibility to the upper chest enable a deeper anjayenasana, the pinnacle pose of the practice.
