The Skinny: Threading the Needle

BY DI ARTS STAFF | JULY 30, 2009 7:11 AM

Ready for a fitter, happier, and healthier you? The DI is here to help. Each week, we’ll feature a new yoga pose you can easily incorporate into your daily regimen to promote oneness of body, mind, and spirit.

This week: threading the needle

1. On your hands and knees, with a flat back, slide your right hand through the space between your left hand and left knee. In one continuous motion, slide your arm all the way through, making sure that your right shoulder and the side of your head rest on the floor.

2. Inhale as you lift your left hand and reach toward the ceiling. Find the deepest part of the stretch and reach out with your fingers.

3. Breath and hold for four to eight counts.

4. Release by exhaling and lowering your left palm to the floor. Slide your right arm back until you’re in your original pose, on your hands and knees with a flat back.
