Thread the Needle Pose

Thread the needle pose is a great way to open the shoulders and upper back. It also involves a slight twist which helps to detoxify and calm. It is a simple and gentle posture but one that I really enjoy.

Include Thread the Needle as part of a warmup series for a longer practice. It’s also nice right before bed, especially if you have spent the day working at a computer!

    I like your pre warm up and then the arm lifting to the ceiling for variety. I sometimes offer the arm to extend out like Child’s Pose and then you can slide your leg up on the floor out to the side, leg extended. Need the space to do this in the classroom, however!
