"Reach for the floor."
I think I get it.
Sometimes I stretch my arms as preparation.
"Don't reach for the wall, reach for the floor," is the recommendation then.
The goal is to bring the hands as close as possible to the feet. The chest lifts upwards. This makes it easier to come up. Also this pose shall be done controlled. It's not falling backwards. Most people will fall a bit. The shorter the way is that one falls to the floor, the easier it is to come up.
The understanding how to come up deepens.
Back bending always means strong legs. Back bending is not only improving flexibility, but also strength.
One practice is over and I'm looking forward to the next one: Primary tomorrow.
