Beating the cold

on January 20, 2013

In this cold weather we tend to huddle up ….. rounding shoulders, sagging spine etc.  Here’s some ideas for yoga students –  some yoga poses to help you ‘open up’ and loose the tightness that inevitably follows the huddling:

Some warm-ups first – gently swing arms  from side to side increasing the movement as you loosen up bit; shrug your shoulders a few times then circle them forwards and backwards.  Then some gentle lunges and knee circles.

Try Bridge pose – remembering to move slowly verterba by vertebra

Then some laying Twists

Follow with Cat and Down Dog

Then some Sun Salutations

That should leave you feeling envigorated and ready to face the world again!  Enjoy!
