Chest openers are among my favourite yoga poses because I am always tight in my chest, really noticing it under the shoulders, near my armpits. And I always feel good during this stretch. Stretching is super important when managing chronic pain, and something most of us don’t do enough of, which is another reason I’ve incorporated yin yoga into my daily routine. Please consult with your healthcare team before starting any new exercise routines. I am not a professional yoga teacher, just giving your some education on what has worked well for me! Yoga is also a great way to contact the preent moment, which is the topic of this week’s podcast episode, avaiable here.
Alright everyone, for now, take care and keep making the most of it!
Yoga has been one of the ways that has helped me a lot with my well-being in the past year or so. These are two versions of one of my favourite poses for the back – seated and laying twists. Yoga not only has a lot of physical health benefits (such as improving flexibility) and mindfulness benefits (such as mindful movement) but also mental health benefits as therapeutic yoga is used as an embodiment approach to mental health. As always, talk to your doctor or other healthcare professionals before changing your exercise routine.
