"Pie in the Sky" Yogini: Shoulders!!!
Yikes! We know as fellow yogis the shoulders can take a beating in our practice. So what to do? Here are a few tips to keep the shoulders strong and keep you happy in your practice.
- Your shoulders must stay down and back so you can maintain the best range of motion in your shoulders, back, neck and arms.
- The key is to activate the shoulders by externally rotating your shoulders. This will allow you to seat your shoulder blades down and back and away from your ears.
- Avoid the "hunch" whether you are driving in a car, sitting at your desk or shooting one arm up in triangle pose.
Here's too happy shoulders!
