Someone asked me yesterday what stretches I do to be able to flip my grip and I happened to be recording when I was doing exactly that. I did all these shoulder and back stretches before I filmed the tiger video for you guys yesterday. I usually do all of these before back bending work. Wall assisted stretching is my favorite. Also, my @yogabodyfitness wheel is awesome too! So either of those tools are super helpful for deepening your shoulder and back flexibility 👌🏽 . Obviously, this is sped up. Take your time in each stretch and breathe! Make sure you are reaching up through your heart and not just dumping into the low back. . #openheartwarriors #yogastretch #wallassist #operationgetbendy #flipthatgrip #shoulderstretch #backopener #yogalife #yogatutorial #yogalove #yogalife #yogateacher #yogachallenge #practiceandalliscoming #aloyoga #beagoddess #homeworkouts_4u #natashafitdrills #stretching

Restorative and Supported Matsayasana or Fish Pose 🐟 . This version is with blocks and one of my favorites. I like to do this very often in class. And once you learn to get comfortable in it, then it is highly relaxing, you won't want to come out of it. . It's a great one to open up the thoracic and chest. A gentle heart opener. . 💠Points to remember 💠 - Position the block between T2- T9 - Keep the block vertical, in line with the spine. - Let the block be between the shoulder blades - Make sure it doesn't touch the lumbar - Use either of the 3 options for the head rest, keep the neck relaxed. - Once you find your position of comfort, stay in it for as long as you can. - Roll out to the side and then lift up, don't come up straight. 🔹The longer you hold the more effective it is. Feel rest assured to come out feeling extremely relaxed and opened up. . 🔹Upper spine aches or rounded shoulders? This one's the best for you. . #yoga #hathayoga #ashtangayoga #matsayasana #fishpose #heartopener #chestopening #yogablocks #yogaprops #backopener #backbend #restorativeyoga #thoracic #upperspine #nishthabijlani #yogatutorial #igyogafam #instayoga #bandra #mumbai #indianyogini

Day 17 for the #30dayyogajourney it’s #dhanurasana #bowpose 🏹 When I first started working on this posture all I remember is trying so hard to flip my grip and get my feet all the way above my head like so many other yogis I followed on here. I remember getting so frustrated that I couldn’t get my rotator cuff to cooperate to get myself into that “goal pose.” Now I mainly use this posture as a back strengthener instead of a deep backbend. Plus it’s a pretty good shoulder stretch for me too. Remember practice takes patience 🙏🏼☺️ . . . .

Opening up into this pose felt like my quads released so much tightness - I did a modification of today’s pose with my yoga wheel - it felt much more grounding to rest the body on the wheel for the recline part of this pose - while enjoying half-frog pose on either side — I also did some other poses to open up those areas before and after each reckoned version... Day 15 of the #shoulderconnections challenge is #suptabhekasana ❤️ Thankful to Carmen @cyogalife for these yoga challenges - today was Day 14 of the #shoulderconnections challenge —so grateful for this amazing IG community!! #igyogacommunity #yogachallenge #yogajourney #instayoga #igyoga #instayogafam #desiyogi #yogaeverydamnday #practicenotperfection #instayogi #practiceandalliscoming #surrender #myyogajourney #yogabalance #yogabalance #givethanksfebruary #shoulderopener #yogawheel #backopener #quadstretch

Throw back to last summer! I miss my tan.. and the flat with the yellow door 💛 There’s not really any space to do yoga in my new place which is pretty heart breaking. However once the weathers better I can just go to the beach and practise by the 🌊 this is my doing a chakrasana / wheel pose variation, it’s a good back/chest opener 🙏🏻. . . . . . . . . . . . . #backbend #bridgepose #wheelpose #chakrasana #yogaposes #yogagirl #yogachallenge #yogafit #fitbody #fitgirl #fitness #strongwomen #healthybodyandmind #flexiblegirls #backopener #chestopener #variation #inkedgirls #tattooedgirls #tbt #strongnotskinny #girlswhoclimb

Do you ever find yourself in a mental rut? Unable to figure out why you keep falling off of your intended path. When you start to see patterns in your behavior, take a step back and think as to how these patterns came about, and think of ways to change them. #heartopener

#workoutwednesday . This lovely move targets all things neck, traps and upper back. . Particularly good for upper cross syndrome caused by looking down at say screens, clients l, playing with children, really any thing that rounds the upper back for too long and often. Basically everyone can benefit from this move. . These Breugers have been a staple movement for me since my accident in healing my neck and back pain. . Do these before any of the activity stated above or even as apart of your general movement regimen. . Check out my stories for how tos! . Comment below on how well these work for you! . #health #fitness #wellness #correctiveexercise #correctiveexercises #healthandwellness #injuryrecovery #neckinjury #recoveryispossible #uppercrosssyndrome #backopener #womenshealth #femalehealth #femininehealth #accidentrecovery #physicaltherapy #personaltrainer #fitnesscoach #womenshealthcoach #recoverycoach #nutritioncoach #onlinehealthcoach #livefiercely

coloringyoga. 🌻Incredible hamstring and low back opener anyone?? Try guillotine pos

🌻Incredible hamstring and low back opener anyone?? Try guillotine pose!🌼 . KEY POINTS 1. The full expression of this pose requires extreme hamstring flexibility. It's best to work very slowly into this pose and keep a bend in your knees so as to not overstretch the back of the legs. 2. The quadriceps must engage fully in this pose to maintain stability and to help press the chest through the legs. 3. At the same time the legs are working, the shoulders should press back against them in opposition. 4. If you cannot clasp your hands, use a towel or strap and keep walking your hands closer together as you continue to practice this pose. 5. Good luck and listen to your breath. If you are holding your breath at any point during this pose, back out and acknowledge your progress. . #guillotinepose #forwardbend #forwardfold #spinestretch #stretchingtime #forwardbending #hamstrings #calisthenicsmovement #contortion #yogaflexibility #padahastasana #yogabend #yogaeveryday #yogatutorial #yogatips #yogamechanics #howtoyoga #ashtangayoga #wideleggedforwardfold #standingforwardfold #yogaathome #homepractice #yogateacher #loveyoga #yogafun #yogastudent #hipopener #backopener #flexibility #hamstringstretch

OPEN BACK for an OPEN HEART Shoulder and Back - Yin Yoga Workshop with SueYen In this popular 2.5hr workshop we’ll be working through a Yin Yoga practice, that will access the back, shoulder and neck area. Combining the nurturing qualities of Yin practice and the healing benefits of myofascial release, the stretches help to release tension and tightness in and around the upper body and torso area. Typically this area gets over stressed on a daily basis from everyday life! It’s where most of us hold our stresses, creating built up aces, pains and bad posture which results in poor breathing circulation. Similar to a deep tissue massage, some postures will be held with deep density to help release those stubborn knots, creating on release, that Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh feeling. This workshop is an energetic, physical and spiritual pathway to Opening into the Heart Chakra, release tension, breath more freely and stand a foot taller! Experience, increased mobility and freedom in the neck and spine. Click the link to reserve your mat. http://www.evolvewellnesscentre.com/event/id/954/open-back-open-heart-yin-yoga-workshop-west-london Where: Evolve When: Saturday 9 March Time : 15:30-18:00 Cost: £35 price includes 1 professional Yoga block for participants to take home and carry on with the shoulder & back release #yinyoga #shoulderopener #backopener #myofascialrelease #yogablocks #openheart #evolveyogaandwellness #yogeverydamnday #sueyenwan
