World Cup and Chair Pose

images Unknown-1

Hello, I hope your enjoying the world cup. Yesterday was the first time ever, where they stopped the game in order to let players get a drink of water. Very nice to see that money doesn’t rule everything. To many  of our games get interrupted by T.V timeouts and all this other advertising hoopla. Soccer with it’s constant flow of the game is a welcomed reprieve from our media hungry society. Anyway I watched the way the players were using their hips to bend and jump and it reminded me of a dynamic chair pose. So many times in Yoga we do this pose with much to be desired. Make sure when you bend it’s with your hips and not your lower back and or knees.  The poses on the left is mechanically sound, while the pose on the right is creating undue stress or to much load on the lower back.
