In this flow we balance out the back body! In dynamic styles of yoga such as Ashtanga and Vinyasa Flow there is a lot of pushing action in the chaturangas, which is great for strengthening the front of the shoulders (pecs, anterior deltoids). But in yoga there isn't a huge amount of pulling action, which you would get from activities such as rock climbing, rowing etc. So if yoga is all you do (like me!) then this may mean there could be an imbalance in the shoulder girdle and your back body could be underworked. Lots of sitting and rounding forward may also over-stretch the muscles of back and could lead to back pain; so this flow will balance out any underworking/over-stretch by working the back body with a scattering of locust poses and backwards planks...maybe with the use of weights if you have a couple of tins of beans spare!
