Place the pillow with the logo turned upwards onto the BackMitra in such a way that it supports the back of the head. This prevents the chin from lifting up during the exercises, helping to relieve the restricted feeling in the neck.


According to the needs of your back and neck you can choose between 2 heights by turning the pillow a quarter.

If you still feel your chin is pointing upward you better use the high position (fig. 2). This position is recommended initially in cases of kyphosis or forward neck posture.

    Brigitte, I just introduced my parents (mid-70s) to the Back Mitra and they’re so impressed they’re going to order one. My mom has a rounded upper back and so we needed to use a pillow for her comfort. I didn’t realize you’d developed an actual BackMitra Pillow – it’s perfect! The regular pillow was too wobbly, and this looks like it will be exactly what’s needed to give her proper relaxation and extension. Thanks for all you do, and all you’ve done, to make the world a better place.
