Yin yoga and backbend

Hello everyone
I'm interested if it's possible to train backbend with yin yoga from scratch. If so what postures would you recommend to me?

Abnormal flexibility

Hi Bernie
I have seen a girl, who can do the full lotus and at the same time W-sit with even elevated feet. Can you explain how is this possible?
Thanks

A substitute for shoelace

Hi Bernie
As I have mentioned in a post, I can get into the shoelace pose because of the impingement pain while I am driving the top leg over to the other side. What can I do about it? Can you suggest a pose or poses that do the same kind of stretch and will be easy to get into?

A question about Femoral version

Hi everyone
This quick question interested me. Does the femoral version affect the hip rotation when it is flexed? If so how do anteversion and retroversion affect it?
Thanks

Sequence for hip external rotation

Hi everyone
Can you give me a sequence of yin positions for lotus pond of flexibility? I saw a link of it in an old post of this forum but it didn't work. Also is it possible that bone on bone compression limit that kind of flexibility early on?
Thanks

Re: Posterior pelvic tilt

Hi
I think it's due to tight hamstrings ( because I have very tight hamstrings). But also I tend to sit "on the tailbone" on chairs or couches for years. Maybe that could cause it also. I am working on it
