The Spine & Inversions
22 November, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Feeling The Shape Of Our Spine When We are Upside Down
Viparita Karani and all inversions seem to turn everything on it’s head – not just our body.
When we do a forward bend in standing, it’s fairly easy to have a good idea of what our spine is doing compared to when we lie down though or perform another kind of inversion. Then, it’s much more difficult.
It’s as if the proprioceptors – those little receptors that tell us where our body is in space – get all confused… Is the spine in a forward bend, a backward bend, or a little bit of both?
Like anything in life though, knowing what we are aiming to achieve, and why, in any given pose is a helpful starting point.
Legs Up The Wall
This coming Sunday, I will be doing a free Facebook live session, looking at the position of the spine in one of my all-time favourite poses Viparita Karani, commonly called legs-up-the-wall.
