The ly­ing pos­ture

Good Health Choices - - Be Informed -

Ly­ing on your back, bend your knees so the soles of your feet are com­fort­ably on the ground and not too close or too far from

your bot­tom. Place your arms to each side in an anatom­i­cal po­si­tion – this means your arms an­gle out from your body and

your hands will be roughly 30cm from your sides.

Sink the top parts of both your up­per arm bones into the floor. This nat­u­rally rolls your col­lar­bones wide and sep­a­rated and re­po­si­tions your tho­racic spine. This re­laxes

the large up­per back and neck mus­cles and fires up the hun­dreds of smaller mus­cles around your spine and ribcage.
