Get Twisted - Not Tied

If you don't enjoy twisting, it's likely because you're using an overzealous approach. Though it may be tempting to go for it, twisting as deeply as you possibly can, this approach might leave you feeling stuck—like you have nowhere else to go. A more effective way to experience this group of poses, however, would be to take your time so you really feel an opening.

First, elongate your spine and create space in it before twisting; otherwise you exert pressure on the disks and leave yourself open to injury. Second, using props in twisting sequences to gently prepare the body for deeper poses. Being mindful of your alignment and using props will prevent you from powering through the poses, so you can enjoy a spiraling action up the spine and reap the benefits that twists offer.
