This week in our yoga lessons, here in Walton on Thames, Surrey we focus on the neck, shoulders and spine. It is very common to hold onto stress in this area so use your exhale to soften into this space.
We also introduce a lateral twist to the spine known as Bharadvajasana.
This lateral twist of the spine relieves pain in the neck, shoulders and back. It keeps the spine, shoulders and neck supple. It increases hip and back flexibility. Start in Dandasana, then ease onto one on the hips as you bend the knees. Both knees point forwards. Both feel are on the floor, the top foot rests on the arch of the lower foot. Sit tall with the spine elongated and erect. Check that the shoulders are the same height from the floor, that the ribs are level, relax the muscles of the neck, and tuck in your shoulder blades. Try not to lean back but feel lifted. The right shoulder will twist so it is above the left thigh and breathe. hold for a minute, using your exhale to twist more deeply. Then reverse sides, taking Dandasana in between.
Please find the lesson plan below and let us know how you get on…
