00:00:05,120 –> 00:00:07,860
hi everyone welcome to a cardiogram my

2
00:00:07,860 –> 00:00:09,780
name is Esther I’d like to show you

3
00:00:09,780 –> 00:00:11,969
something you can do to remind yourself

4
00:00:11,969 –> 00:00:14,789
of keeping a good posture doing yoga

5
00:00:14,789 –> 00:00:17,370
it’s nice to do yoga with I had it on

6
00:00:17,370 –> 00:00:19,830
yesterday when I was doing some computer

7
00:00:19,830 –> 00:00:23,250
work so you need a long strap so this is

8
00:00:23,250 –> 00:00:25,500
about eight foot strap if you don’t have

9
00:00:25,500 –> 00:00:26,730
that if you’ve got shorter straps you

10
00:00:26,730 –> 00:00:30,180
can tie what two together yeah you’ll

11
00:00:30,180 –> 00:00:31,440
find out when it’s too short and then

12
00:00:31,440 –> 00:00:32,850
you’ll have to figure something out so

13
00:00:32,850 –> 00:00:35,280
what you do is you bring the strip along

14
00:00:35,280 –> 00:00:37,769
the back oops

15
00:00:37,769 –> 00:00:45,229
and yeah so bring it along the back

16
00:00:45,229 –> 00:00:48,479
about same distance of both sides and

17
00:00:48,479 –> 00:00:51,300
you want it to come across just below

18
00:00:51,300 –> 00:00:54,350
the shoulder blades there so quite high

19
00:00:54,350 –> 00:00:58,829
not too high and then you’re going to

20
00:00:58,829 –> 00:01:02,870
bring the strips over the same shoulder

21
00:01:02,870 –> 00:01:06,690
so you bring them back and then you hold

22
00:01:06,690 –> 00:01:09,320
them from behind and you push them

23
00:01:09,320 –> 00:01:11,790
because when you push them the shoulders

24
00:01:11,790 –> 00:01:14,310
are being pulled back then they need to

25
00:01:14,310 –> 00:01:18,240
cross behind the back so you’ve got them

26
00:01:18,240 –> 00:01:21,840
and you cross them and you pull them and

27
00:01:21,840 –> 00:01:23,790
then you can already feel how the

28
00:01:23,790 –> 00:01:26,130
shoulders are being pulled in place

29
00:01:26,130 –> 00:01:30,180
behind you and then being here you’re

30
00:01:30,180 –> 00:01:34,500
going to close the strap at least that’s

31
00:01:34,500 –> 00:01:37,220
something you can do

32
00:01:41,119 –> 00:01:47,990
so I need to make it a bit tighter

33
00:01:52,700 –> 00:01:55,530
something like that so you can see that

34
00:01:55,530 –> 00:01:58,560
the Front’s of the straps are being are

35
00:01:58,560 –> 00:02:03,630
pulling my shoulders back now so you can

36
00:02:03,630 –> 00:02:05,039
sit behind your computer and Google

37
00:02:05,039 –> 00:02:07,409
sorts of work walk around look like a

38
00:02:07,409 –> 00:02:09,660
little bit like full but hey for good

39
00:02:09,660 –> 00:02:11,340
posture we can do this or you can do a

40
00:02:11,340 –> 00:02:13,400
yoga pose with it so you can for example

41
00:02:13,400 –> 00:02:16,310
bring the feet wide and do triangle pose

42
00:02:16,310 –> 00:02:20,280
with the strap on inhale finding length

43
00:02:20,280 –> 00:02:22,590
lifting the arms will be grounding to

44
00:02:22,590 –> 00:02:24,299
the feet pulling the pelvic floor up and

45
00:02:24,299 –> 00:02:26,940
then exhale come into triangle pose

46
00:02:26,940 –> 00:02:28,319
bring your right arm bounding your left

47
00:02:28,319 –> 00:02:32,940
arm up and you can really feel how this

48
00:02:32,940 –> 00:02:34,980
reminds you shoulders to stay back which

49
00:02:34,980 –> 00:02:36,510
is quite nice and reminds your upper

50
00:02:36,510 –> 00:02:38,100
body to stay open if you don’t want to

51
00:02:38,100 –> 00:02:39,630
over ours in the back so you still want

52
00:02:39,630 –> 00:02:41,580
to pull the belly in keep the groins in

53
00:02:41,580 –> 00:02:44,400
in the belly in and take the tailbone

54
00:02:44,400 –> 00:02:46,680
down to keep grounding the lower body

55
00:02:46,680 –> 00:02:48,780
but the upper body stays open and from

56
00:02:48,780 –> 00:02:51,410
here it’s really nice to move on into

57
00:02:51,410 –> 00:02:52,650
Halfmoon pose

58
00:02:52,650 –> 00:02:56,220
so you stretch the right leg lift the

59
00:02:56,220 –> 00:02:58,380
left leg you can look down you can bring

60
00:02:58,380 –> 00:03:01,829
your left arm behind you holding onto

61
00:03:01,829 –> 00:03:05,160
the leg or really opening up here and if

62
00:03:05,160 –> 00:03:07,829
that feels good you can take the left

63
00:03:07,829 –> 00:03:12,930
arm up and still that upper body just

64
00:03:12,930 –> 00:03:16,670
cannot slump from here you can gently

65
00:03:16,670 –> 00:03:20,400
step back into triangle and coming back

66
00:03:20,400 –> 00:03:22,680
up from there and do the same thing on

67
00:03:22,680 –> 00:03:24,989
the other side so ground through the

68
00:03:24,989 –> 00:03:28,049
feet pull the pelvic floor up lift the

69
00:03:28,049 –> 00:03:31,799
arms exhaling gently come into it your

70
00:03:31,799 –> 00:03:33,450
tie bones are always your ties are

71
00:03:33,450 –> 00:03:39,079
always active so bellied groin is in and

72
00:03:39,079 –> 00:03:44,190
tailbone reaches down so enjoy the

73
00:03:44,190 –> 00:03:46,530
opening here you can bring your left arm

74
00:03:46,530 –> 00:03:50,819
behind you bend your front knee gently

75
00:03:50,819 –> 00:03:53,370
slide the right leg forward left hand in

76
00:03:53,370 –> 00:03:53,760
front

77
00:03:53,760 –> 00:03:55,709
you’re on the little toe side and come

78
00:03:55,709 –> 00:04:02,819
into Halfmoon enjoying the openness here

79
00:04:02,819 –> 00:04:06,989
and if it feels right taking the right

80
00:04:06,989 –> 00:04:14,069
arm up and from here again gently coming

81
00:04:14,069 –> 00:04:17,190
back into triangle and coming back up

82
00:04:17,190 –> 00:04:19,430

85
00:04:25,680 –> 00:04:29,789
different things whilst you sort of

86
00:04:29,789 –> 00:04:32,600
remind your shoulders to stay back

87
00:04:32,600 –> 00:04:36,330
with the belt and work on your posture

88
00:04:36,330 –> 00:04:38,720
doing yoga and just walking around
