|Don't Try This With Your Dane!|
As you watch today's video, don't push yourself too hard. Remember to always warm up first. I'm learning that lesson well, as I forgot a couple of times and was a bit too stiff later.
Also, I sometimes have to remind myself that stretching out as much as Jess is not necessarily the goal. The goal is to enjoy the ride, and bond with the dogs. Keep that in mind and remember the positive self talk is all important. You'll find some nice quotes and sayings on our Facebook page for All Things Doga. Enjoy!
Your head is like a bowling ball--big, round, and heavy. When it's balanced directly over an erect spine, it takes much less work for your neck and back muscles to support it. Move it several inches forward, however, and you start to strain those muscles. Hold up that forward-leaning bowling ball for eight or 12 hours a day and it's no wonder you're tired. And fatigue might not be your only problem. Poor posture can cause back, neck, and other muscle and joint problems. As you slump, your body may compensate by flattening the normal inward curves in your neck and lower back. This can cause pain and degenerative arthritis of the spine.
