If we want to smartly “bend like a reed in the wind,” be it physically in our yoga practice or athletic pursuits, or figuratively as we mentally flow with the winds of life, how happy we are in our bodies will be a huge factor in our performance. So let’s treat these little muscles right, nurture their health so they can support our mobile freedom and happiness!
Try this Yoga Tune Up® pose Boomerang in the video clip below (and also on the Quick Fix for Lower Back videos) to laterally stretch and strengthen the Intertransversarii and a few other muscles as a bonus!
Matthew has embraced a centering practice throughout most of his adult life; his pilgrimage taking him through long distance running, Daoist meditation and chi-kung, and several styles of Taiji and kung fu, as both a student and teacher. His classes tend towards a non-dogmatic amalgam of his biology education, martial arts foundation, yoga journey, and life-inspired philosophy. He strives to make each practice accessible and yet challenging enough to open the door to self-exploration and uplifting success.
Matthew is a Certified Yoga Teacher and Yoga Tune Up® Instructor, and has over 20 years of experience in mind/body movement arts.
