LA based Briohny Smyth has inspired thousands of yogis both in her classes and in her somewhat controversial yet stunning video, Yoga By Equinox.

I particularly loved the following:
“Backbends are always misunderstood in yoga, and many yogis end up injured due to the misconception that we backbend solely in our low back, when you really want to think about creating space in the low back.”
