Thank you, Kristin, for this practice. I had a teacher a long time ago who told me that it was dangerous for the spine to hold a supine twist for more than 2-3 breathes. He said that these twists could create a “memory of misalignment” in the spine if you hold for too long. Do you agree or disagree. I would love to hear your feedback and advice. Thank you!
Another great question Lily A :) If you have SI issues or Lumbar disc problems I wouldn't suggest supine twists done passively for more than 5 breaths (this includes restorative twists). I've never heard of "memory of misalignment" but rotation is part of what a healthy spine can and should do and don't see why we couldn't attempt them if it's well aligned, done with attention and kindness and respects the individuals comfort.
