5
00:00:20,699 –> 00:00:23,699
posture in the Sun Salutation and it’s

6
00:00:23,699 –> 00:00:26,820
also a mild inversion so let’s do it

7
00:00:26,820 –> 00:00:30,179
properly rib flare if you correct the

8
00:00:30,179 –> 00:00:32,189
flared ribcage come into your downward

10
00:00:34,620 –> 00:00:36,450
button in towards the spine and at the

11
00:00:36,450 –> 00:00:39,239
same time imagine pulling the lower rib

12
00:00:39,239 –> 00:00:42,450

lower back if your lower back is very

14
00:00:45,870 –> 00:00:47,760
rounded the best thing that you can do

15
00:00:47,760 –> 00:00:50,039
is bend slightly at the knees

16
00:00:50,039 –> 00:00:51,629
this will take out some of the crews

17
00:00:51,629 –> 00:00:53,940
from tight hamstrings allowing you to

18
00:00:53,940 –> 00:00:57,410
straighten the spine a lot more

19
00:00:57,410 –> 00:01:00,660
hyperextending joint hypermobility can

20
00:01:00,660 –> 00:01:03,120
be a symptom of stretched ligaments with

21
00:01:03,120 –> 00:01:06,000
weakened collagen fibers however it can

22
00:01:06,000 –> 00:01:08,420
actually also be a proprioceptive issue

slight Bend particularly in the elbows

27
00:01:18,479 –> 00:01:20,369
