Almost didn’t have time to record a new #MinuteMoFlow today…but, since it only takes a minute, I really couldn’t use that excuse. We did some serious landscaping all day to cut down foliage in prep for a fence replacement, which is why I’m dressed like a “landscaping ninja😎." You see, in Florida, it’s smart to cover your entire body to avoid making contact w/the various kinds of 🕷🕷🕷in all shapes and sizes that live here. Can you tell I have a bit of arachnophobia🕷😳?
Anyway, back to the MoFlow: Although this one features fewer movements than normal, by taking it slow, you can really focus on your breathing. Like other MoFlows, it still covers all planes of motion and spinal movement. It felt great after all the yard work! Try it👍. BTW, if you listen to the audio, you'll hear Brody barking at me because he wants to come out & get his mo flowing too 🐶. ###
Instruction details for this MoFlow: Like past sequences, there are nuances that impact effectiveness. To begin, stand with your feet together (big toes touching, heels slightly apart) and place your hands on your lower ribs. Take a full breath in, focusing the expansion in your lower lungs as your lower ribs externally rotate. Elongate your exhale to completely empty the lower lobes of your lungs, bringing your lower ribs in, back and down. Inhale to move into the 1st phase of the lateral side bend and follow me through the rest of the sequence using one phase of your breath (inhale or exhale) to coordinate with each movement. Notice that I go into the twisting chair yoga pose a little differently than the traditional yoga way by keeping my forearms together as I squat, then opening my arms & bringing prayer hands into the chest as I twist open from my t-spine. Initiate the twist w/an inhalation, focusing expansion of the inhalation into the side of lungs/ribcage that you’re rotating toward.
Remember, I’d love to see you practicing these flows. So post your videos and tag me @MobilityMaker with the hashtag #MinuteMoFlow so I can check you out getting your mo flowing.
