In this yoga session we twist to stimulate our metabolism, knead the organs, and energize the body. Gentle twists release tension in the shoulder and back muscles as well as blockages in the spine. Twisting postures can help you stay centered and release tension during emotional and difficult times. As you can see, twisting postures in yoga are very versatile, they definitely make us sweat, but then also help us relax and let go. Have fun twisting!
