Here you can find articles and other resources on the BackMitra in relation to Yoga.

If you are a yoga practitioner you can learn about how the BackMitra can help you to improve your yoga practice. If you have a stiff upper back and shoulder area,  asanas like downward dog, sarvangasana, pincha mayurasana, hand stand and sirsasana can be quite challenging.

Here you can read the rest of the inspiring article of a UK teacher who after introducing the BackMitra saw her classes filling up.
