what’s up everyone, welcome to Yoga with Adriene, I’m Adriene. Welcome to our new yoga room. This is our first tutorial back in the new yoga room, or our first yoga tutorial anyway.
Back in the new yoga room. So I welcome you, help me christen it with some yoga basics. This month we’re kind of getting back to basics and today we’re going to do back pain. Well, we’re not gonna do back pain,.
But we’re gonna kind of address back pain and really just spend some time on the floor remembering that your yoga practice has your back. Welcome to the new room, it’s probably gonna change. We might paint it,.
We might even move to another room, who knows. But I think that this practice in particular, especially since it’s for the back, and just our yoga practice in general is awesome for teaching us to find support from within and of course, to go with the flow.
So let’s hop on the mat and get started. (steady guitar music) Alright my friends, so today we’re gonna begin on our backs. Take your time getting there, maybe take a full body stretch when you land. And begin to notice your breath as we begin.
Take a second to notice, some of you have probably heard me say this before, that your yoga mat or your yoga practice, your yoga, has your back. Literally in this moment, right? Bring the hands to your ribs,.
Bring your feet to the outer edges of your mat, and then allow the knees to fall in. Take your time getting here, no rush. Then lift your lower back, lift your pelvis and see if you can just tuck the tailbone in, maybe reaching it up towards the sky.
So we’re just lengthening out through the lower back, basically. Then we’ll draw the shoulder blades in and together and down, so we’re just crawling those shoulder blades underneath you so we can open up through the chest.
