00:00:06,299 –> 00:00:09,330
I’ll start in a downward facing dog take

4
00:00:09,330 –> 00:00:11,280
you through plank lower down chaturanga

5
00:00:11,280 –> 00:00:14,160
dandasana and then come into upward

6
00:00:14,160 –> 00:00:15,809
facing dog and I’ll hit all the little

7
00:00:15,809 –> 00:00:16,470
places in between

8
00:00:16,470 –> 00:00:19,529
okay so Auto mukha downward-facing dog

9
00:00:19,529 –> 00:00:22,199
begins to come here and we’re going to

10
00:00:22,199 –> 00:00:24,740
peel forward into your high plank pose

11
00:00:24,740 –> 00:00:27,720
exhale to lower you down chaturanga and

12
00:00:27,720 –> 00:00:30,480
then lean into one foot set a foot onto

13
00:00:30,480 –> 00:00:32,460
the floor point through the ankle but

14
00:00:32,460 –> 00:00:34,410
spread the toe so you use the thigh

15
00:00:34,410 –> 00:00:35,610
bones and the thigh bones will lift away

16
00:00:35,610 –> 00:00:37,350
from the floor next I’m going to take my

17
00:00:37,350 –> 00:00:39,270
heart forward wrap the shoulder blades

18
00:00:39,270 –> 00:00:41,879
back and arms can be eighty bitty bend

19
00:00:41,879 –> 00:00:44,160
little bend in the elbows so you can

20
00:00:44,160 –> 00:00:46,440
transfer softness into the heart to come

21
00:00:46,440 –> 00:00:50,190
out one toe or both toes it doesn’t

22
00:00:50,190 –> 00:00:52,289
matter one’s not cheating it’s just your

23
00:00:52,289 –> 00:00:53,820
preference and then back through

24
00:00:53,820 –> 00:00:55,440
downward facing dog so that’s the

25
00:00:55,440 –> 00:00:57,960
overall movement I’ll talk about some

26
00:00:57,960 –> 00:01:00,390
specifics okay so as you come to high

27
00:01:00,390 –> 00:01:02,699
plank pose I want you to think about

28
00:01:02,699 –> 00:01:05,099
melting between your shoulder blades so

29
00:01:05,099 –> 00:01:07,080
you can see right now that my shoulder

30
00:01:07,080 –> 00:01:09,119
blades are on my sides what I want to be

31
00:01:09,119 –> 00:01:10,890
able to find is that my shoulder blades

32
00:01:10,890 –> 00:01:14,040
come closer together but my belly has to

33
00:01:14,040 –> 00:01:16,530
second like crazy in order to keep it

34
00:01:16,530 –> 00:01:19,680
from not doing that right so I’m going

35
00:01:19,680 –> 00:01:21,240
to melt the shoulder blades separate

36
00:01:21,240 –> 00:01:23,189
from identical values in a region as I

37
00:01:23,189 –> 00:01:25,470
lower down I’m just continuing to melt

38
00:01:25,470 –> 00:01:27,390
those shoulder blades closer and closer

39
00:01:27,390 –> 00:01:29,880
together and then as I come forward for

40
00:01:29,880 –> 00:01:31,920
upward facing dog my shoulder blades

41
00:01:31,920 –> 00:01:34,380
just stay where they are and I’ll roll

42
00:01:34,380 –> 00:01:36,360
back to downward facing dog so I

43
00:01:36,360 –> 00:01:39,210
literally think about my shoulder blades

44
00:01:39,210 –> 00:01:41,340
being those two little hands assisting

45
00:01:41,340 –> 00:01:44,399
down and then helping lift up here and

46
00:01:44,399 –> 00:01:46,470
then taking back in a downward-facing

47
00:01:46,470 –> 00:01:49,290
dog so it might be a little helpful tip

48
00:01:49,290 –> 00:01:51,720
for you for four advil mukha svanasana

49
00:01:51,720 –> 00:01:54,040
upward facing done

50
00:01:54,040 –> 00:00:00,000
