Hey it’s Nick Ortego here. I’ll show
you how to use a rubber band to get a
little bit of assistance on the yoga
sequence where you go from down dog to
chaturanga to updog and back to down dog.
You just want a big rubber band such a
this one wrapped around something that
won’t move. It’s a little bit above your
head get inside the loop place the
rubber band at the hip crease, that’s
where your hips bend when you hinge.
Go down to the floor, fingers are
spread really wide about shoulder
distance apart. The middle fingers point
forward. as the middle fingers point
forward you want to rotate your elbow
creases forward like this. You don’t want
to have your elbows flaring out to the
side like that. So tuck the toes and
lift the hips. I’m getting a little
bit of assistance in the
downward-facing dog position here and
then I’m going to inhale and shift
forward to plank. Then exhale and
lower all the way to hover the ground.
elbows are tucked into the sides. I don’t
want to flare it out like that. Then I’m
going to inhale
for upward facing dog and then exhale
downward facing dog. It looks kind of like
this. Inhale, exhale, inhale, exhale, inhale
exhale, inhale, exhale and that’s how it’s
done. Got any benefit from this video?
