Heart, Hips, and Head
Tone the appropriate muscles and connective tissue to return the natural curves to the spine. Feel the difference it makes!
Knees forward, hips back
Knees together, sitz bones apart
Knees apart, glutes up
Strengthen the muscles in the back of your neck and lighten your ribcage with this Buoy Pose.
With your hands on a fence or table, fill up your rib cage and, pressing your hands down on the fence, lift your ribs higher as you root your hips back and down. Pulse with your breath. Hover your heels and repeat.
"Your hand opens and closes and opens and closes.
If it were always a fist or always stretched open you would be paralyzed." ~ Rumi
Curl yours fingers, hollow your palm, and squeeze your wrist as you slowly spiral and unspiral your hand.
