Don’t lean in, don’t lean out. Lean to the side.
Popular yoga asana emphasizes powerful lengtheners for the front and back body, and in our daily lives we most often dwell in this front/back sagittal plane of movement.
Let’s spice it up in a practiced designed to decompress, and create length and space in your side body.
Side body lengthening can be powerful to relieve back pain, deepen twists and backbends, and allow for greater expansiveness in our lungs (more prana = more life force!). Sidebends recruit shoulder stabilizing muscles and deep core layers that you might not even know exist.
This practice is a sweet invitation for more opening and buoyancy in our physical beings.
