Two Knee Twist

Lay on your back and bend both knees in towards your chest. If it’s more comfortable you can also bend your knees and keep your feet flat on the floor.

 

Take your arms out wide and have your palms facing up. Let your knees drop to one side and either support your legs on a bolster or let them drop all the way to the floor.

 

Shoulders stay soft and your head can turn in either direction or stay centred.

Physical Benefits:

 

  • Releases and rinses out tension in hips & spine

  • Opens arm lines

  • Massage/squeeze internal organs

Contraindications: If you have lower back issues or are pregnant, use support under your knees so that you’re not compressing too much through your back or belly in the twist.

Props: Bolster if needed.

Important: In your Yin Yoga practice it is extremely important to listen to your own body. Within some of these poses you may experience discomfort, but we are NOT looking for pain. If you have an injury, be sure not to push yourself. If you feel any pain or pinching, back off out of the pose or try something else.

Make sure you move in and out of these poses slowly and mindfully. Give your body time to understand the changes that are occurring and make sure you rest between poses so that your body can reset.

While each pose does list suggestions for props and the known contraindications, your body is unique. It is your responsibility to keep yourself safe in your yoga practice ❤
