podcasts: bound up and inside out.
in 50 shades, our 6:30 a.m. benders play with binding. we bound up almost every pose, exploring shoulder mobility, chest opening and more.
a couple of notes:
– it’s good to have a towel or a strap for these. you can use these to get your shoulders open even if your hands don’t clasp together.
– also, know that binding is all about opening your shoulders…when you feel like you’re struggling or creating more tension, stop. keep your intention in mind and work your binds to a healthy edge.
– as you’ll hear in these podcasts, it’s more important to keep the integrity of your posture than to get your hands clasped together. work all your postures with intention from the ground up…once the posture is good and your body is ready, the bind will be easy and fun!
in bottoms up and hearts open, our 5:45 p.m. monday maniacs get some back bending tips and tools. we cover some basic techniques for flipped dog, camel and wheel. hit play on this one and we’ll get your heart open with no low back strain or pains in the neck (except for the teacher’s third grade sense of humor).
