One Minute Tips. Today's Tip is on Chair Pose! 🪑

Chair Pose, which is called Utkatasana in the Yoga Sanskrit language, is a great exercise to get gorgeously strong, toned and grounded in the legs. Did you know, doing it engages the abdominals, and stretches and strengthens the diaphragm - the extremely important breathing muscle in the torso!

One Minute Tips! This week it's the elbows.

Elbows in Chaturanga 💪 

 

Chaturanga means a type of push up but reversed, so more like a push down😁 It's well loved in yoga, but most often practiced incorrectly! It's pretty darn amazing for building upper body strength. It's the action you take to move from plank pose to being on your belly on the mat, or, to move into upward facing dog. This is a great arm and shoulder strengthener, and also works out your back and core.👏 

 

Follow my One Minute Tip if you want to learn how to do this correctly, to build optimal strength without crunching up your neck or collarbone area.

One Minute Tips! This week it's the NECK!

Are you staring at your phone more than ever right now? Or putting in hours at the computer? If so, you may run the risk of a compromised postural balance in the cervical spine in your neck.🦒 Don't worry! It's easy to rectify a forward head postural habit. It requires a little mindfulness of attention to how you are holding your neck and then creating a new, healthier positioning of the area. 

 

Follow my One Minute Tip and use it while practising Yoga, and, as much as possible throughout the day. You will bring your cervical spine into a healthy alignment which will in turn create a flow of energy, and much more mobility, through your entire spine. When your neck is aligned efficiently, your central nervous system functions more optimally giving a boost to your immune system!🦒Yes! 👏😁👏

Try this every day, stay for 2-3 minutes and breath into it! Feel the effects in your whole body. Similar to reflexology, when you release your feet, it benefits all major organs in your wonderful body 👏 🙌 👏

One Minute Tips! This week it's HAMSTRINGS!

When our hamstrings are tight or over worked, forward bending can feel like a real pain in the butt! 😁 Restrictions in your lower back, hips or legs? Find out an easy way to do forward bends while still receiving all the benefits! Seated forward bends make you feel really good and even alleviate depression! They calm the mind and give your central nervous system a natural come down from stress.

 

Practicing, slowly and steadily, following my one minute video tip, will release your spine, shoulders, belly and back of the legs. Trying Paschimottanasana Yoga pose, 3-4 times per week, will help you sleep better! Now that sure makes it worth doing! 👏💤 🙌 Namaste you guys! 👏

Have a gorgeous day!
