Irene in the scanner

One of my students in the scanner doing a ‘head to butt’ backbend. Notice that a significant part of the spine does not bend. The biggest angle in the back is where lumbar vertebra go over in the thoracic vertebra. ((angle 1). The biggest bend is in the cervical vertebrae, the neck (angle 2). The secret of a successful backbend lies in a supple neck.
