I'm Jessica from YogaBabes and I couldn't have been more delighted when Daphne's invited me to be a guest on their blog!
I am a passionate yoga teacher, food connoisseur, green living lover, and blogging enthusiast that will be dropping by Daphne's blog monthly to share my yoga tips and tid bites on healthy living. I have my bachelors in science from Loyola Marymount University in Natural Science and yoga certified through CorePower Yoga.
Seeing as though this month is National Yoga Month, I wanted to celebrate with Daphne's by giving half off (starting today through the end of October) to anyone who mentions Daphne's when booking a private yoga session through YogaBabes. Email me HERE for scheduling.
Alright, now for the Pose & the Purpose
The pose of the month is Marichyasana, also called: 1-Legged Seated Spinal Twist. I love this pose because it elongates your spine, improves posture, and it also aids in digestion.
Begin seated on your mat with your legs extended straight out in front of you.
Bend your right knee and place your heel as close to your right sit-bone as you can.
Reach your right arm behind you and plant your palm on the floor. Press your right hand on the floor behind you to help lengthen your spine.
Place your left elbow on the outside of your right knee to encourage a deeper twist. Stay here for 5 or more. Use each inhale to lengthen the spine and each exhale to twist further.
