Dru Yoga - Sharva Udarakarshanasana: the maltese cross

Dru Yoga - Sharva Udarakarshanasana: the maltese cross

This posture takes the simple lying twist a step further. It opens and stretches out the chest and pectoral muscles, gives a great twist to the spine. It strengthens the core muscles and frees up the lower back. It also stretches out the gluteal muscles and this helps ease hip and back pain. Not only that, but this posture also aids digestion and helps trim the waist line!

I'm Not Feeling Very Centred

You know what its like – you have been rushing around so much that you are losing things. Or perhaps you have had so much on your mind that you just cant think straight.

There is nothing so refreshing like coming back home to a feeling of connectedness and equipoise.  A quick way to start this process is to give your body a shake and stretch or to do a Dru Energy Block Release sequence (from the Dru Yoga Course).
