Welcome to May! As some of you may know, May is National Fitness Month. This is a time when many of us will be hitting the gym hard to get ourselves beach body ready. However, for some (meaning me), sometimes we tend to overdo it in our zeal to get into shape. As much as many of us may like to have rock hard abs & super toned bodies, it is important to remember to take our time & be safe in our workout routines. As I mentioned last week, May is also a time when allergies can hit us hard causing us to round through our shoulders and upper back, creating additional tension & tightness to our chest & lunges making it difficult to breathe. So in keeping in line with the idea of working to open our bodies to help combat these effects while keeping the body strong & limber, allow me to re-introduce Ustrasana or Camel Pose. Camel Pose is great pose that stretches the entire front body, quads, hip flexors & ankles, while strengthening the back muscles, arms & thighs. It also loosens up the vertebrae improving flexibility of the spine, posture, & helps to relieve back pain. This pose also works to expand the abdominal region, improving digestion & elimination. Because it is such an intense heart opener & back bend, it is important to come into the pose slowly & with a great deal of care. With all these great benefits, what better way to enter May than with a pose that not only opens & expand, but also strengthens the body while bringing focus.
