This little 2-minute-practice is a great start for a day: moving you spine lubricates all the joints in your back and helps keep your discs hydrated.
Practise: Rinse your spine
Stick to two minutes every morning
When you first get out of bed in the morning, the discs between your spinal bones are a little plumper making the spine slightly stiffer than usual, so make a cuppa and potter around for ten minutes before you try this practice
- Get down on all fours.
- Hands under shoulders knees under hips.
- As you breath out draw you tummy up drop your tailbone and your head and let your back hump up to the ceiling.
- As you breath in start to stick your bottom out behind you shrug your shoulders down and look ahead of you.
- Repeat over ten breaths.
How do you feel?
