Threading The Needle Pose- #IYOGLAXFLEXUARY

Hello My Beautiful People! Today’s pose, Threading the needle, teaches us to look within and know that your body is your temple. We all have limitations but in order to know what they are, you have to do as the pose says, thread the needle, and put in a little work.

Step By Step Threading The Needle Pose:

  1. Start in table pose, with your hands on the mat, wrists directly under your shoulders, knees under your hips and toes under your ankles. Point your fingertips towards the front of the mat, shins and knees hip width apart. Gaze down at your mat softly.
  2. Exhale, slide your right arm underneath your left arm, palms facing up. your right shoulder should come down all the way to the mat. Place your right ear on the mat and cheek on the mat and gaze towards the left.
  3. With your left elbow lifted at a 90 degree angle, and hips raised, position your head comfortably so that you are not pressing your weight on your head. Hold here for 4-8 breathes,
  4.  To release from this pose, Press through your left hand as you slide your right hand out from under your left shoulder. Return to Table pose, and then repeat on the other side.

 

A Matr3Moni Reminder:

“NO MATTER WHAT, it’s your body and your choice.”

Please be careful while practicing; If you have prior injuries be extremely mindful of every movement and how it affects your body. By now you know your body and the difference between your pain and your stretch, so again, be careful.

Along with being mindful while practicing, you also have to be mindful of what is going on in the inside of your body and mental/spiritual realms. You can work your body in such a positive way and still counter the positive vibes by not having healthy habits and/or awareness. Do not fight against yourself, find ways to incorporate wellness habits into your daily activities. Start trying new activities that engage all of your core muscles, and then some that you didn’t know you weren’t working already.
