Do you know how long it took me to transfer from right to left fluidly during #skandasana
...many many years. This seems super simple, but it isn’t. You have to have ankle mobility, strength at the hamstring isch tube attachment, an opening in the #adductors
(inner thigh), an ability to properly hip hinge. Meow. I could arm balance until the cows came home, but doing this without injuring was a chore. Here a am, doing it. One day, I just did it, without ever really working at it. I just kept doing the #yoga
and then it came. Much like every single thing you do in yoga... you just keep doing the yoga and the movement / strength comes... you just keep doing the yoga and the inner peace comes.. nothing is forced.. everything is ginger and happens in its own time. .
Last stretch on this video is my absolute favorite to open up the upper extremity lateral line.. where the hip is closed chain.. on the ground and your lats, serratus, QL, intercoastals, and even glut Med can open. If you have the #scoliosis
and typically most common is left sided tension (ql) spend time here.. I was diagnosed with it when I was a young girl (more on that later)... and this lateral line stretch is a favorite. The key is to breathe into the lateral (side) rib cage to open up.. if you can’t grab your foot, all you have to do is reach your arm over head. If you can grab your foot, it works like a nice pulley.
