Surfing Your Spinal Wave

35 min - Practice


Lydia offers a practice for surfers designed to promote freedom and openness in the shoulders and back. We move through a series of strengthening and balancing postures, closing with a spinal twist and some breath work. While this sequence is designed with surfers in mind, it can be beneficial for anyone seeking fluidity and relief in body.

Aligning and calming...exactly what my body and mind was calling for.
Kelsey Beyond happy to see you here. Love you!
Decided to try this, knowing I can't do tree without a wall (no arches, no balance) I needed the strap with the forward bends, arms over, and enjoyed the shoulder stretching, as mine are extremely tight. I LOVE the spinal wave, and will take this with me as a daily practice, the oscillating is so soothing. Middle section was a bit too fast for me, not a fluid surfer, I guess.
Love the stretching at the end, so there are a few movements I will take from this practice. Grateful for the challenge.
Hi Joan! Glad you have something to grapple with for a while. :) Love, Lydia Zamorano
