I will get Alix to demonstrate the exercise.
Start standing. Move into the downward dog position, bending at the hips, and working on hamstring flexibility. Bend through the hips, keeping everything in a good straight line.
This is excellent for working on hip mobility, range of motion, core, shoulder mobility and stability in the shoulders.
When moving from the downward dog position into the end position where the hands are digging into the mat, we are activating the lax, the pax and the shoulder blade muscles. We are activating the muscles that stabilize the shoulders, making this an excellent exercise to build stability in the shoulder.
Going through the downward movement and upward movement challenges the shoulder in different ranges of motion. The downward movement also challenges the core area.
The end position where we are arching back through is excellent for the back because most of us do a lot of sitting. Bending forward is great as we are reversing that movement that we tend to predominate and live in.
Give that exercise a go. Go into the starting position then move into the scoop position. Move your way towards the end position and then back to the downward dog position. Go through 5 or 10 repetitions.
