Camel tutorial with alignment cues and modifications.
Make sure your spine, hip flexors and quads are warmed up properly before attempting this pose.
Steps: Keep your knees hips width distance, and keep your hips over the knees. As you inhale, lift your chest and look up, as you exhale begin leaning back (maintaining hips over knees alignment). Use each inhale to EXPAND the chest upwards, each exhale to lengthen chest bone away from pubic bone, lengthening your front body.
Modifications: Curl the toes under for more elevation, in order to keep hips-over-knees alignment. If hips still hinge back, or you feel discomfort in the lower back, use blocks for even more height.
If you still feel a pinching in lower back, just keep your hands on your lower back and lift your gaze up- without going any further.
