Summer Extend&Compact - part 2

Chiara M. Travisi - illustrated by Svenja Karstens

First section


The first section is composed by Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 and Part 4 and it includes yog-asana entailing an extended and open body shape. Lower limbs and upper limbs diverge from the central line either on the sagittal or frontal planes, or away from armpits and groins.


Part 2 includes basic standing asanas which are here approached with the maximum attention to the positioning of the sitting bones and the pelvis. The brick has the specific effect of creating a sharp awareness of the sitting bones, because their correct positioning is pivotal for working the so-called "screw action" in the hip sockets and allowing the legs to extend away from the body while remaining stable and still at their roots.


A very tiny change in the sitting bones positioning, even if seemingly insignificant, can instead create a huge perturbation in the action of and in the sitting-bones also affecting the lift of the abdominal walls and chest.


Since the main goal of this part is to achieve a deep articular centripetal action in the head of the femur and insertion into the hips socket, make sure you are sitting exactly on the front of the sitting bones. However, avoid falling completely forward and lift the tailbone too much. The sacrum coccygeal and pubo-coccygeal ligaments should be in balance.
