100 Years Ago

You’ve heard the saying, “some things never change.” Well, in this case, it’s a true statement! The sculpture I am modeling the pose after is over 100 years old.  Auguste Rodin (1840-1917) had the right idea for how to start the day when he carved “Morning” out of marble. Artist, Rodin, is best known for his sculpture called the “Thinker.”

This shoulder opener is a great way to get in touch with your back body and its alignment.  Start by standing or sitting well - with a firm, rooted foundation. Place your hands over your head, fingers interlaced.
With elbows bent and palms up to the sky, isometrically try to pull your fingers apart.   Keep pressing you head back  in neutral alignment and lengthening through the back of the head.

Enjoy the feeling! Make your day wonderful!
