Posture of the Week: Balancing Stick

Posture of the Week: Balancing Stick

The forward tilt of your torso sends high-speed blood pouring into the heart, especially the neglected lower region, cleaning out the veins and all the arteries, strengthening the heart muscle.  The same rejuvenating flood rushes into the brain as well.  It is also one of the best exercises for bad posture.  By perfecting body control and balance it strengthens physical, psychological, and mental powers.

3 Tips for Balancing Stick:

  1. The hardest part about balancing stick pose it to take with you some of the things you worked on in the previous posture. Specifically focus on your standing locked knee. You will notice your thigh muscle will want to remain loose but you have to work hard to contract your thigh muscle.

  2. In order to keep your arms with your ears try thinking about your upper back muscles activating to make it a little easier.

  3. Before you bring your body down and leg up parallel to the floor transfer your weight to your standing foot and strong solid leg to stabilize your self and the proceed from there.
