Hiking in my little country, feeling the watery air, seeing the wide skies and the picturesque houses, hearing the sounds of the Dutch birds, made all my cells relax.
It has been very nurturing for my nervous -system.
I am in quarantine right now in a little apartment at my friends place.
What a gift to be here in this gorgeous rural area.
Next weekend I will be able to meet up with my mom and my sister.
I can’t wait….
In Tomorrows class we will address the back muscles.
Namely the ERECTOR SPINAE.
The ERECTOR SPINAE is a group of muscles and tendons which run along the spine from the sacrum to the base of the skull.
These muscles vary in size and structure at different parts of the vertebral column.
In the sacral region the muscles are narrow and pointed.
In the lumbar area they are large and thick.
Gradually they ascend like tree branches and insert into the vertebrae and ribs.
FUNCTION of the ERECTOR SPINAE is to straighten the back and to provide side-to-side rotation.
An injury or strain to these muscles may cause back spasms and pain.
We will play with different back bends, forward bends and twists to get to know, strengthen and release these postural support muscles.
See you in my Dutch, virtual Yoga Studio.
Thanks again for accommodating to the 7 hour time difference between the Midwest and The Netherlands.
“Holland; straight roads, slow rivers, deep clay.”
