Yoga Focus of the Month:
April Showers bring May flowers – nurture your practice!
After a long winter, spring is finally here! The season for growth and renewal is the perfect time to nurture your practice, just the way a gardener nurtures planted seeds, knowing the reward will be happy, and healthy plants.
Twisting poses increase circulation and cleanse internal organs by guiding metabolic waste out of your body. Twists compress the internal organs, and when the twist is released, fresh, oxygen-rich blood flows back in, creating the cleansing effect – perfect for a great spring renewal of your practice.
To reap the benefits of yoga twisting poses or asanas, try the two shown here:
Seated Spinal Twist
Sit upright on your mat with your legs extended in front of you and your hands resting on your thighs, both sit bones grounded into the earth. Bend your right knee, and cross your right leg over. Place your right foot next to your left thigh. Reach your right arm behind you and place your fingertips on the ground. Inhale, lengthen your spine, and lift your left arm upward. Exhale hook your left arm on to the right knee trying to gaze over your right shoulder. Inhale, lengthen the spine, exhale, twisting deeper into the pose.
If it is within your practice you can bend your left knee and position your left Ankle next to your right glut. Your right foot should stay planted on the floor. Square your hips so they remain even.
