Thrifty Thursday. Borrowing from a friend, colleague, and boss lady. Her beautiful salabasana, participating with #backbendmadness2014. Let’s face it. I am sooooo sick of pictures of me, even with the sweet Charlie. So, today featuring the beautiful @Arlet, owner of the great @extendyoga. I ❤️ her. I also ❤️ belly down backbends. They are challenging for sure. But great for you and your spine. #Salabasana is a good one. You can try it by lying face down and lifting your straight legs up and hugging them toward each other, with forehead on ground, hands resting by sides, palms facing down. Or stay there and also lift chest and head, flying arms behind you, unlaced fingers, palms facing down or inwards. Or try variation pictured here, interlacing fingers, hugging base of hands toward each other (eg, avoiding right angle wrists and forearms) and drawing the head of your arm bones away from your ears. In either lifted variation, keep head in line with spine, gazing just slightly forward, long neck, no wrinkles in the skin at the back of your neck. Always lengthening tail bone toward floor. And, whenever hands or feet are in the air, they are active, spreading toes and fingers (unless interlaced).
Do yoga. Today. Every day.
From my mat to yours,
