Today is a short but tough one!! @finolaphysio and I are showing an amazing flow to strengthen your shoulder muscles, particularly the rotator cuffs. Shoulder pain is incredibly common and a great way to treat or prevent shoulder pain during poses such as down dog is to specifically condition the muscles required for it which help support and stabilise the shoulder.
The exercises we are showing strengthen your rotator cuff muscles whilst putting weight through your arms as you would during downward facing dog. Your rotator cuff muscles keep your shoulder stable whilst you move them through range. As a downward dog shoulder position is at the end of shoulder range it’s even more important to have stability. @finolaphysio will talk more about shoulder pain tomorrow #checkitout
Check out Finola's page for details on level 1 (it's still super challenging!) and see below details for my version. If you get an increase in pain please stop and if you have ongoing shoulder pain see a physiotherapist who can guide you.
1️⃣PLANK SCAPULA PUSHUPS Come into plank position engaging the core throughout. Inhale squeezing the shoulder blades together as much as possible and exhale to push away from the floor pulling the shoulder blades away from your spine. Repeat x 10 repetitions.
2️⃣SHOULDER TAPS In plank position engaging the core and pushing through your hands into the floor. Transfer your weight to your left arm (try to avoid twisting the pelvis too much and keep pushing away from the floor!) and tap your left shoulder with your right hand. Repeat on the other side. X 5 each side. This is so tough to do not twisting the hips!
3️⃣BEAR CRAWL Starting in plank walk the right arm and left foot forward simultaneously. Then walk the left arm and right foot forwards. Now walk backwards in the same way. Repeat x10. Keep the core nice and strong throughout and move as slowly as possible. #physio#rehab#shoulderstrength#strengththroughyoga#prehab

I really like these #starrypalettes . I'm not sure what company sells this but it has #princessa and #malibuglitz also under its umbrella. (All are great). The swatches look great and I think they work pretty well on the eyes as well.
Next up on my #haul extravaganza!!!
I decided I needed to get this #palette from #alterego . Its the #temptress palette and it has great #pigment . These swatches are one swipe! Its my new love! I can't wait until next month, they are suppose to release more.
