As you continue to breathe, lift your spine up from your pelvis seeking length in the side body. Curl the upper spine until your gaze is skyward (with the neck still in neutral). Release your hands towards your heels.
Remember to keep your thighs as perpendicular to the ground as possible, hips moving forward. The backbend comes from the upper spine in Camel, not the low back! Curl from the upper (thoracic) spine and firm the abdomen to support the back.
Hold this pose for several breaths, then walk your hands back to your hips. Inhale, lift through your spine and roll your shoulders forward bringing your body back perpendicular to the earth.
If there is any discomfort in your low back (Camel can be intense), counter this pose with Child’s Pose.
