Would you like to practice those pretty backbends in the silk and the aerial hoop? Or you are looking to increase your spine flexibility with a safe yoga practice at home?
Our spine is so delicate and so strong at the same time, is the one in charge of connecting our whole body, from our head, torso, arms, hands & fingers to our hips, legs, feet, and toes.
Some of us are born we the body more available to perform backends and torsions without a lot of effort and others need to work a little bit harder to get those pretty backbends.
Either or, it is true that if you don’t keep the good training and the practice going we will eventually feel stiffer and it will be harder to move.
As Kevin Kelly said “You are only as old as you spine is flexible”
The spine is a pivotal important part of our body. Without it, we could not keep ourselves upright or even stand up. It gives our body structure and support. It enables us to move about freely and to bend with flexibility. The spine is also designed to protect our spinal cord. The spinal cord is a column of nerves that connects our brain with the rest of the body, allowing control of our movement and bodily function. This is why keeping the spine flexible is vital for a healthy and active life and also important for an optimum nervous system function.
