By bringing your awareness to the axis of the spine in twisting postures, we can use it as a way to connect to our steady center. Twists work physically on releasing the spine and can also cultivate a sense of connection, steadiness, and lightness in the energetic body. We spend some time at the beginning warming up the shoulders and upper back which tends to be more difficult to access in twists. We also use the support of the wall, chair, and blocks to nurture the quality of steadiness.
Props: 2 blocks and/or chair, strap, wall space (optional), blanket (optional)
