This episode of Anjali Restorative Yoga with Shannon Paige releases built up tension and stress in the back. This sequence that Shannon calls Twist and Bend is aimed at the two least made movements of the spine in the human body, side body bending (torso flexion) and twisting. By moving through a thoughtful progression of side bends and supportive twists, the spine gains a liberation into new found flexibility and the breath finds more space and freedom. The result is a profound sense of length and ease in the back body accompanied by a sense of peace and calm.
