💛 Ignite your inner flame 💛
Lying, seated, standing, there are many variations to our twists, which serve as a reset for the body, being both energizing & neutralizing.
Affecting the hips & shoulders, they maintain the length & resilience of the soft tissues surrounding the spine, as well as preserving the mobility of the spinal muscles, keeping our discs & joints healthy & allowing the flow of fresh oxygenated blood upon release, stimulating circulation & releasing tension.
They take care of our spinal nerve health, boosting the nervous system & compress the internal organs like the digestive system, intestines, uterus & kidneys.
Lack of space between the vertebraes can leave our energy getting stuck & tension builds, leading to a sense of lethargy. Through twisting we lengthen the spine and get space between the bones. Then our energy can flow better.
In our Yin versions, twisting through the rib cage stimulates the Gall Bladder meridian, they also help the liver, spleen, and pancreas as well as additional meridians depending on the shape you are initially making.
We also stimulate into Manipura chakra. The energy centre to inspire transformation, connected to the Fire element, relating to our self-esteem & willpower. The goal of this chakra is to ignite your internal fire, strengthen your will to act & break through passivity.
Manipura chakra is also all about how you ‘digest’ your life. Can you stand up for yourself? Are you strong & courageous, do you feel confident, worthy of love & respect?
Fire is action & transformation. Allowing yourself to grow & become a better version of yourself means taking action & leaving behind what no longer works for you.
Trust your sparks of determination that keep your passion burning. Never give up, follow what lights your fire & use your twists to ignite your inner fame.
