Full range of movement is a conscious and deliberate exploration of healthy movement including very small movements, large movements as well as movements in between. Learning to move intelligently is one way of ensuring that we keep the joints healthy and free from injury.
This is a 60 minutes practice including exploration of full range of movement in various joints in the limbs and in your spinal column. This sequence is also directed to notice relationships between different body structures, arms, legs, shoulder girdle, hip girdle, legs and spine. In addition, you will cultivate coordination between movements and integration with breathing. Finally, the sequence guides you through some simple breathing techniques for centering, relaxation and calmness. At the end of the practice there is a brief guided meditation to make the practice complete and satisfying.
In yoga there is no need to strain, struggle or self-judgment. Try to make the movements fluid and graceful. Make your breath simple and easy. Enjoy the practice with a gentle smile.
Noticing the effects during and after the practice can help you ensure that the practice is beneficial for you. If you find the practice beneficial, consider trying to practice a few times each week.
Enjoy the practice and its effects.
