Yoga Pose of the Week (Week 19)
Sitting Spinal Twist
Bring yourself gently into the posture in the picture below. Then, slowly rotate your spine to look over the shoulder where the arm is behind the back. Think about lengthening the spine as well as twisting it. Hold here for 5 breaths and then repeat the other side. This pose is excellent for releasing any tension in the muscles either side of the spine. It is also a great detox pose as it boosts the circulation and helps the lymphatic system remove toxins so it is excellent to do the morning after a big night out!
