Yoga Workshop Wednesday – Upward Dog

Common areas of hypermobility:


·         Lumbar spine hyperextension – low back too arched back

·         Elbow hyperextension – elbows 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: tuck tail bone down towards the ground using gluts and lower abs

·         Don’t lock out elbows

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