1. Day 23: Bridge Pose


    from Cara Maclean / Added

    This is a fairly simple introduction to Bridge Pose (Setu Bandha Sarvangasana), but please take care that you don't watch the screen during this video. This might be one - because you could hurt your neck by looking sideways - that you watch before you do the practice. This will minimize any neck wrenching, which is never good. (Particularly in poses like this.) Also note, that you might always have a bit of space between your low back and the floor. That's fine. Just make sure your core is engaged as much as possible to keep your low back and hips somewhat stable. Possible Intentions: Stability, Communication, Building Bridges & Connections Did you like this video? Then let me know by leaving a comment! If you want more, go to www.CaraMaclean.com to get 30 more videos to build your daily practice. All less than 20 minutes. (Well, ok, there are a couple longer practices too.) And I would SO appreciate it if you’d share this video with your friends! Let them know you’re working on your yoga practice and encourage them to do the same. Yoga invites ease. (Even if it’s awkward at first.) Happy Practicing! - Cara *****

      Bridge Pose (Setu Bandha Sarvangasana) Begin lying on your back with your feet flat on the ground, arms resting at your side. With a deep inhale press your feet firmly into the earth and begin lifting your booty off the ground, firming through your thighs. Keep lifting until your thighs feel parallel to the ground, making sure that your feet stay in line with your knees. Once your thighs and booty are lifted clasp your hands underneath you, helping you stay on the tops of your shoulders. Firm through your arms and push your heart towards your chin, keeping your neck flat on the ground. Once you are in position, breathe deeply and hold for as long as feel comfortable. Bridge Pose is a gentle back bend and helps stretch the chest, neck, and spine. The most fundamental part of any yoga pose/sequence is your breath. Try inhaling for 3 seconds and exhaling for 5, always making the exhales longer than your inhales. Breathing is the most IMPORTANT part of yoga, the poses(asanas)/sequences are just a bonus. :: Your breath is what keeps you alive. :: We chose yoga. What will you choose?

        Bridge pose strengthens your back, hamstring and gluteus muscles. It opens your chest and hips. Meanwhile it massages your internal organs which helps digestion. We love this pose for backache and if we're feeling anxious.

              • Awaken the Core - Part 1


                from Darcie Clark / Added

                In a few simple movements, you'll learn how to feel and engage the muscles that make up the "core", including the inner thighs (adductors), iliopsoas (hip flexors), and transversus abdominis (innermost abdominal muscles). A strong core supports movement in your whole body, making you feel lighter with less tension and strain elsewhere in the body. This practice starts with small and gentle movements in sync with the breath including pelvic tilts and leg lifts to get acquainted with your core.

                • Brynn's "Rest" Day: The Stand Up Paddle Board Yoga Sesh


                  from Wes Walker / Added

                  When my friend Brynn can't escape to the New River Gorge or North Carolina to send hard 5.12's on trad, she likes to play in the water. It was a "rest day", of sorts. Most activities she tries, she dominates. This evening was no different. We left the hustle and bustle of downtown Charleston, and cruised over to James Island, where the Ashley River and Cooper River converge before dumping out into the Atlantic. With the the exception of handstand and some warrior poses, she pretty much stayed in bridge pose for the better part of 2 hours! ;) While I was standing on the dock, trying to think of the positive aspects of mosquitoes, a local fisherman and I started chatting. He was a really nice guy and he paid close attention to me filming Brynn. After about twenty minutes, he walked back over to me and in the kindest voice possible, he quietly asked me: "I don't mean to get into your business, but lemme ask you somethin', bo... What in the hell are ya'll doin?!" I polite fully tried to explain, and I couldn't help but smile and laugh. So classic! After he went on a beer run with the fam, he helped me hold the camera flash! That southern hospitality. Yessir! Good times had by all. Tunes: Artist: Groove Armada Song: Inside My Mind (Blues Skies) Album: Vertigo
