20 Oct 2014 » Balancing groundedness and lightness
In my approach to yoga, balancing opposites is one of most important aspects of the practice, and I believe that an emphasis on balance is key to maximizing the benefits of your yoga practice. This week I want to focus on a specific pair of opposites, the feeling of being grounded, and the feeling of lightness.
13 Oct 2014 » Keeping your back safe in forward folds
Forward folds can be quite problematic for the lower back, because overly rounding (or flexing) the back can cause an intervertebral disc to bulge or rupture at its posterior edge when its front edge is compressed. Why is that an issue? Because the spinal cord, and the nerves exiting from it, are located behind the intervertebral discs, so that discs that bulge or rupture to the rear can create significant and even debilitating pain by compressing these nerves.
