This Month’s Theme: Twists & Better Digestion

MY FAVORITE CUES

New cues posted every month to inspire your practice and teaching.

Week 1

One inspiring cue:

While in Figure Four Pose with your spine long, clasp your hands behind your head and push your head into your hands as your heart stretches forward. Feel your chest open.

Why?
Making this minor adjustment improves mobility in your shoulders, chest, and upper back. In essence, it becomes a full body pose!! Also, by pressing your head up, you will take your upper back (thoracic spine) and lower back (lumber spine) into extension. This is especially important for people who spend a lot of time sitting during the day.

***The cues I find and post are by well respected body experts and Doctors who teach yoga and other body nerds like myself.
