First off, apologies for the few moments of wind. I decided to keep the audio because it's quite helpful. Welcome to the debut of Shamana Athletics!
Aries Fam, you'll totally understand this... my mom has a group of friends who all suffer with sciatica. The operative option for this unease is quite invasive and very expensive. And I might add, unnecessary.
A simple stretch done twice a day for 30 seconds on each side can make the pain subside within a few days. If you make this stretch a part of your everyday routine, the long lasting benefits are numerous. The most important being relief of lower back pain and the flush your organs receive when the body is twisted to both sides.
The breathing technique that accompanies this exercise is very important. As you touch your toes and hang your head like a rag doll exhale out. Stay here for a moment and breathe deeply. Inhaling deeply twist and exhale. Hold the stretch as you exhale. Repeat for the twist on the other side.
Although this is a very simple stretch, pushing your body is never a good idea. This is a peaceful process of gently removing stress from your muscles, namely muscles in a key area of stress accumulation. As the days progress and the entire area loosens up, you will inevitably begin to notice a psychological benefit as well.
When our muscles are holding less tension, our mind holds less worry.
Disclaimer: I am an internationally licensed yoga instructor and have the proper certification to provide this instruction. However, please take your own abilities into account and only proceed with this stretch if you feel that your body can handle it.
I will make a Chair Yoga version of this stretch for those who are not mobile and cannot utilize a mat.
This video is part of a larger effort to bring you content that will raise your quality of life and happiness.
A new yoga channel will launch in the Spring called Shamana Athletics and I'm very excited about it. More on that in the coming months. You can sub now, content will be posted periodically and an Instagram will follow. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCX0_bDgzrRSJ8MWCX6E2FpA
If you like the yoga wear, I'm glad. It's the prototype for my line of Shamana Athletics leisure and yoga wear. More on that in the Spring as well.
Exciting stuff you guys.
Heads up, Libra and Aquarius are up next and then we're going right into April and a little bird told me that the May videos might be from the Amalfi Coast, where some more yoga videos will be set.
