Yoga Workshop Wednesday – Mountain Pose

Common areas of hypermobility:


·         Lumbar spine hyperextension and anterior pelvic tilt- low back too arched back, pelvis tilted forward

·         Knee hyperextension – knees locked out and bent too far back, beyond straight

·         Head and neck hyperextension – head and neck hanging back, chin up

 How to control:


·         Lumbar hyperextension and anterior pelvic tilt: tuck tail bone down towards the ground using gluts and bring pubic bone tucked up using lower abs

·         Don’t lock out knees, keep knees ‘soft’.

·         Control head and neck posture, try to keep chin down towards throat more, gaze will not be as straight up
