This week in Nithya Priyan School of Yoga, adding a bind to your twist uses leverage to deepen the axial rotation of your pose as it opens your shoulders and outer hips, increasing the detoxifying potential of the deep abdominal compression achieved. It challenges your shoulder mobility and your ability to manage your breathing, but rewards you with a beautifully lengthened spine, creating space between each vertebrae. See you on the mats!
