Backbends provide a great remedy for anyone who spends long hours in front of a computer and for anyone who sits at a desk. Sitting for extended periods of time has been linked to a host of health problems. Backbends lengthen the front of the body, an area that remains flexed and closed while sitting. Backbends are energizing and heating poses, so they’re good to practice as a morning wake up or a mid-day reset, but you may not want to practice this sequence before bed. The instructional format of this video offers you a class on backbending that you can follow while you watch. Poses included in this video include Cobra (bhujangasana), Locust (salabhasana), Bow (dhanurasana), Bridge (setu bhanda sarvangasana), Upward Facing Bow (urdhva dhanurasana), and Camel (ustrasana).

This video will demonstrate a very unique aspect of Muay Thai, how to fight in the clinch. Many people consider Muay Thai a form of kickboxing, but the clinch, which involves grappling to control the opponent’s head and scoring points with knees, elbows and sweeps, is not part of the majority of kickboxing competitions. To prepare for our clinch work, we warm up with knees and arm movements. And then move on to proper technique for controlling the head and review the two different types of knees practitioners may use to score points in the clinch. For these drills, it is very helpful to have a training partner and proper equipment is recommended at all times.
