PART I: BEYONCÉ 🔥 IVY PARK ATHLETICWEAR X CAMEL POSE
Love to buy new performance wear when I practice, it inspires my workout/yoga session! IVY PARK is a joint venture brand launched last year by Beyonce and Topshop. Her goal with this line was to "push the boundaries of athletic wear and to support and inspire women who understand that beauty is more than your physical appearance". And can we just say that her line is really cute? I shop at SIX 02 all the time and frequently see her brand in the store! Shop the look below and try Camel Pose with me!
CAMEL POSE (USTRASANA) HOW TO
Starting off on your knees, place your hands behind your back firmly. We want a strong core, so squeeze your butt as well.
Take a deep breath, drawing your rib cage and sternum upward and out, open your Heart Chakra.
Gazing up toward the ceiling, begin to bend backward, taking in deep breaths.
Place your right hand onto your right heel, left hand onto left heel.
Slowing push your stomach and chest forward, continue deep inhales and exhales.
To safely get out of this pose, place your hands on your lower back and raise up gently.
Opens the rib cage, allowing lung expansion to occur naturally.
Works the thyroid, parathyroid, and throat muscles.
Stretches the back, neck, and spine, giving your body more range of motion, increasing flexibility.
This pose is a good emotional release as well, so it's natural to feel nauseous or uncomfortable.
