31 Aug 2015 » Aligning with spanda
In the yogic tradition everything in the universe is considered to be vibrating with spanda. Spanda is the subtle creative pulsation that manifests in all living and non-living entities. The ancient yogic assertion that everything pulsates is true in a very literal, scientific way: Scientific investigations have confirmed that everything vibrates, from the atoms that make up all matter, the cells in our bodies, and our bodies as a whole, which expand and contract with our breath, to the stars, and to the universe as a whole, which, according to Einstein's theory of relativity, must either be expanding or contracting.
24 Aug 2015 » Spinal twists
Twists are quite different from the flexion/extension movements involved in non-twisting yoga poses, because twists create strong but evenly distributed compression of the intervertebral disks as a side-effect of the twisting action. Any twisting action in the torso is achieved by diagonally oriented muscles in the torso. As they contract, they not only twist the torso, but they also compress the trunk vertically, and with it, the spine. (If this is not intuitive to you, take a towel and twists it, and notice how it shortens.)
