22 Sep 2014 » Spinal twists
Twists are quite different from the flexion/extension movements involved in non-twisting yoga poses, because twists create strong but evenly distributed compression as a side-effect of the twisting action. Any twisting action in the torso is achieved by diagonally oriented muscles in the torso. As they contract, they not only twist the torso, but they also compress the trunk vertically, and with it, the spine. (If this is not intuitive to you, take a towel and twists it, and notice how it shortens.)
25 Aug 2014 » Generating joy
Research has shown that happy emotions contribute to long-term wellbeing, at least in part by increasing our resilience in times of stress. But none of us wake up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed everyday. So how do you generate joy when you don't already feel joyful? The answer of course is yoga. :)
