Yoga Tips for Women: Spinal Balance
Spinal Balance strengthens back and muscles while engaging your core muscles. Its also good to use to warm up the entire body.
1. To get into position on this pose you need to drop down onto your hands and knees. Be sure that you hands are directly under your shoulders and your knees are directly under your hips. Your head, neck, and back need to be in alignment and be sure that you do not let your stomach sag. Keep your abdominal muscles engaged throughout the exercise.
2. Once on your hands and knees extend your right arm and your left leg. Be sure to keep your chin tucked, your hips squared to the floor, and your body in alignment.
3. Continue breathing through your nose in this position for a minute. After a minute exhale, drop your hand and leg, and then lift your left arm and right leg. Continue on opposite side for one minute.
