Twisting for Spinal Health


Twisting for Spinal Health


PLAY WITH - thread the needle, side plank, revolved triangle, fallen triangle

EXPLORE - twisting with a long and spacious spine

AWAKEN - warmth and brilliance emanating from your centre to your edges

Healthy movement of the spine in twisting asanas requires the ability to initiate the twist from your lower abdomen. Learn the principles of how to rotate your spine from a place of length and freedom, and apply that skill to a range of different asanas - standing, seated, lungeing, and even arm-balancing! You'll feel lighter and brighter after this warming practice.
