Yoga – stretching to maintain flexibility of spine (incl. puppy pose)

Many have asked for a follow-up to the previous video of simple stretches to keep the spine flexible, that is, to maintain flexibility of spine.

This video follows the same principle. It is a little more advanced in that I have my legs in lotus position. This gives me better access to my lower spine.

I rest in puppy pose in between movements to stretch out my spine.

Before I do these stretches, I always warm up with some cardio. I often put on some funky music and shake out the hips to loosen up as shown at the beginning of this clip.

Movements of the spine should always be done with awareness and in harmony with breath.

This video is not instructional but for inspirational purposes only.
