I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving! I don’t know about you, but I had enjoyed every morsel of yummy goodness that was put before me this whole week. But as you know, it does not stop there. Christmas is just around the corner with another feast to come. Some of you may recall that I had hoped to prepare the body and the digestive system last year at this time for the onslaught of food to come, so what better way then to continue with this tradition. Just as we had last year, allow me to make the next few weeks a “Yoga Tribute to Ourselves” as we prepare our bodies to continue to enjoy all the amazing food we are blessed to have on our tables. Therefore, the “Feature Yoga Pose of the Week” will be Parivrtta Anjaneyasana or High Lunge Twist. As many of you know, I have begun to incorporate this pose throughout class. High lunge Twist is a great pose to stimulate the abdominal organs that can help improve digestion and elimination. Because the back heel is lifted while in the twist, this pose helps to improve balance and endurance while strengthening the quads and gluts. This pose can also help to improve stamina while stretching the psoas and hips. Finally, this balance pose can improve concentration while engaging the core and relieve sciatic pain. So be prepared to balance and twist the week away!
