Flip Walk

I was a dancer, all along. DANCE DANCE DANCE.

Vinyasa : the breath and movement between asana.

Asana: a posture.   (Chakrasana= Wheel)

This is an advanced movement. Only because many people do not have this level of shoulder flexion nor extension. Advanced asana is advanced awareness.

  • Shoulder flexion is when you lift your arm straight up in front of you, but to be more specific, when I say “this level” I am talking about getting your bicep behind your ear, so that the whole arm is completely parallel with the body.
  • Extension is the opposite, so standing and reaching behind you.

The flip walk in this video puts a lot of emphasis on core stability, and the flexibility of the hip flexors. (That is how you begin the flip, by opening the hip to softly land the foot on the ground in the bridge-like pose.)

With this fun little dance you will increase the mobility and stability of your shoulder joint. Take breaks. Catch your breath. You will have an increased heart rate while practicing this, and potentially sore shoulder joints.
