For those wanting more flexibility in the back, it's not as hard as you think. Although you may not be able to jump like Alexa, gaining a more flexible and stronger back is key to good posture and good health.
~Try the famous cobra yoga position. Go as far as you can and hold for thirty seconds. Try going a little farther each time.
~Lay on your stomach and lift up your chest and arms and hold it for a minute. When you feel your chest lowering fight to go a little higher.
~ Traditional back bends and the camel pose not only help with back flexibility but also balance.
~Stretch your back out the other way in child's pose. This is important as to not stress out the back too much. A forward bend is also recommended.
Remember, for each stretch go only as far as it is comfortable. Also, I am not a yoga expert or a doctor so all my recommendations are purely things that have helped me gain more flexibility. Tried and tested by yours truly.
