Gentle Yoga Lying Twist

Gentle Yoga Lying Twist from Yoga in 60 Seconds Series


Say goodbye to back stiffness


This gentle yoga lying twist move makes it into my practice every single day and is a lovely moving meditation.  Perfect for beginners and those with ongoing back stiffness, it gently & safely twists the spine with the support of the floor beneath it so there is very little risk of injury or provoking pain.   You don’t need to go far but if it feels ok to, you can expand it out a little further to the sides gradually.  You are in control!

Continue this gentle yoga lying twist for 12 x rounds of breath or longer if you have time. Add it to your daily routine this week and see if it could become a staple in your regular mini practices.

The gentle yoga lying twist is from my Yoga in 60 Seconds Series.

There is loads of free online yoga around but we wanted to create something different. Something anyone can do with minimal time on their hands, no yoga experience, and no fancy yoga equipment. And so, yoga in 60 seconds the online yoga video series was born!

I’ve been teaching yoga in shared spaces and hospitals in Applecross, Bateman and Fremantle areas in Western Australia for two decades. I’m a yoga therapist certified at the highest level currently available internationally with the International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT). Specialising in working with people who have chronic conditions, pain, injuries, or ageing bodies.

I know what people struggle with in both starting a yoga practice and continuing on with it. Time is a BIG factor. It’s my hope that these short practices will encourage you to do a little more home practice. Even if it is just a minute, it sets up a great habit! Doing a little often really is where the magic happens in yoga.
