Uhhh guilty!! ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ Most of us spend majority of our days slouched at our desk, hunched over the steering wheel of our car, or leaning over our phones.
ใ€ฐ๏ธ
Here are some poses that can help counter the slouch & improve posture (yay!)
ใ€ฐ๏ธ
๐Ÿฆ…EAGLE ARMS: My favorite shoulder stretch! Cross your arms the best you can. Lift the elbows up to align with your shoulders and keep your hands reaching away from your face for an extra stretch.
ใ€ฐ๏ธ
๐Ÿ‘๐ŸผCLASP HANDS BEHIND BACK: This simple pose opens the shoulders and chest. Remember to squeeze your shoulders onto your back and keep the neck long.
ใ€ฐ๏ธ
๐Ÿฑ๐ŸฎSEATED CAT & COW POSE: An office appropriate version of this pose that can easily be done at your desk. Move slowly & breathe in each pose.
ใ€ฐ๏ธ
๐ŸฎCOW FACE ARMS: Why do they call it that? I donโ€™t know ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ But this is one hell of a shoulder stretch. Most people are better at one side or the other and itโ€™s totally okay if your hands donโ€™t touch.
ใ€ฐ๏ธ
Next time youโ€™re at your desk for too long, try these poses for a great stretch ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

HOW TO WILD THING โœจ
Itโ€™s a little confusing upside down so letโ€™s simplify #wildthing and make it really easy to follow.
.
Step 1: Open hips in three-legged dog.
Step 2: Touch ball of the foot down with bent knee, and heel off the ground.
Step 3: Turn bottom foot in slightly to allow hips to open and lift.
Step 4: As the hips lift, start lifting and rotating the chest toward the sky, opening the heart. Note that in the final pose, bottom leg will be straight while keeping the leg you lifted bent.

โœจIf you want a Straight Handstand...โœจ
๐Ÿคธ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคธ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคธ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Find your body integration (wrist, shoulders, core, leg strength) and alignment (open shoulders, flat back, etc) for getting a straight handstand with these drills -
.
.
* Tuck up drill: start with knees right next to Handstands. Shoulders over wrists, sent hips up with toes untucked (keep most of the pressure in your fingertips & knuckles!) x10 reps for 3 sets ๐Ÿ˜˜.
.
* Upside down handstand: find your line without standing on your hands! Squeeze legs and glutes, knit ribs in, open and extend through shoulders - and breathe! This is way harder than it looks, but allows you to find your line without any weight on your hands.
.
* Plank: shoulders over wrists, squeeze ankles and knees together as you do (for wrist and shoulder strength).
.
* Down dog with open shoulders: not too open though! Find the 180degree line and stay there, knitting ribs in and extending through shoulders. This is your handstand line from your wrists to hips.
.
* 3 legged dog: opens up hamstrings needed to kick up, tuck up, or straddle up into handstand. Try to keep hips and shoulders squared as you lift one leg straight up as high as you can!
.
* Tuck handstand: find the balance with this shape first and work on compression.
.
* Stag handstand: stag one knee to the chest and send the other leg up to the sky โœจ This is also easier to balance, but one side of your body is already in a straight handstand line! .

Try these out and let us know how it goes ๐Ÿ˜˜ What other drills do yโ€™all want to see? ๐Ÿ™ @miz.liz #yogainspiration #yogspiration #yoga
