About This Video


Holy Moly! That was so subtle, and yet so intense. Lots of “escaping joy” for me with this one 😅
Hahahaha Jenny I know!! Joy everywhere;)
Amazing. Like my inner thighs had a mind of their own! Weird, but strangely satisfying - hello inner thighs
My inner thighs often have a mind of their own Kim !! Thanks for practicing with me!

hahahaha Matthew it sneaks up on you, right?
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.
