Yoga Workshop Wednesday – Chair Pose

Common areas of hypermobility:

 

·         Lumbar spine hyperextension – low back too arched back

·         Shoulder hyperextension – arms and shoulders pulled too far backward

·         Knees pointing in towards the middle

 

How to control:

 

·         Lumbar hyperextension: tuck tail bone down towards the ground using gluts and lower abs

·         Reach hands and arms up and forward, not backward

·         Keep knees in line with toes

·         Not pictured, but still important, to control head and neck posture, slight chin tuck, not looking up and preventing head from hanging back
