I'm having 2 minutes of Wednesday left! As promised, here I am ^^ The last month I've been working on opening my heart chakra. Our heart which lies between our chest and thoracic spine is also protected by our shoulder girdle. Subconsciously ou lift your shoulders if you get scared, pushing your chest inwards, therefore you create more distance to the threat. So if there are any blockades with in your heart, you may have tense shoulders, upper back pain or the feeling of 'I can't breathe'. As mentioned on posts before, I've been dealing with a few struggles. I wouldn't want to talk to anybody, even less to meet some one personaly. If this happened, it was awfully uncomfortable, stressing and costed me lots of energy. I shut all of my surroundings away. Also Insta.
I simply didn't feel like myself.
Now that I'm feeling okay again, I'm dealing with upper back blockades...my heart is healing through motion.
To get into this pose, I needed a good warm up and a little time to get all those muscles and ligaments warm.
I've been having lot's of interesting conversations lately! (Probably because I am truly opening myself again to people) One was about stretching shoulders. This meets exactly the daily practice I've been having for about a month!
So this one's for the question: How do you stretch your shoulders? ^^ If you have any questions or any health/yoga/stretching related topic you want me to post about, feel free to DM me ^^ I'll be happy to meet your inquiries!
The following clips will show you my practice with a few tips too ^^
