EXCELLENT AND INSIGHTFUL!

Binding a yoga pose can do wonders for your body! Triple this effect by using the wall and transform your body once and for all! .

"Wall Yoga, the body awareness, stability, and leverage of the body achieved by utilizing perpendicular planes allows the postures and breathing to be optimized. Based on my understanding of physics and physiology, this is an extremely rational way to approach yoga. Plus, Colette is so encouraging! You work with the client until they get it right and you are very patient."- Dr. Casparian

. . . . . . . . . . .

When you bind a yoga pose you are delving deeply into the tough tissues of your joints and ligaments. What does this mean? If you want to instill "memorization" in your yoga alignment and retain the "perfect alignment" well after your one hour yoga session, then you'll need to move the tissues that are embedded into the attachment of your joints to initiate muscle memorization.

With "Wall Yoga - Binding Poses for Beauty and Strength",we take the simple props of the wall and a ten foot (10') yoga strap to pull and push your body into the position your body is designed to be in, one joint at a time

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Purchase your Yoga Strap HERE or use a ten foot (10') band or rope.

Watch how Colette teaches that the true effect of the yoga straps goes much further than just shifting joints, it has to do with aligning the sacrum and spine to the hip or shoulder girdles for the ultimate outcome of perfect alignment! .

PERFECT ALIGNMENT PRODUCES PERFECT RESULTS!

"Wall Yoga" with the ten foot (10') Yoga Strap is unlike anything you've tried before! Take your yoga practice to a new level and see how the force of gravitational pull on the wall can create the "compound" effect to establish your body in a state of strength and ultimate physical integrity.

Enjoy these nine unique Yoga Binding Poses to Ground, Transform and Heal your body.

Learn this course in less than two hours and enjoy a lifetime of empowering your body with the force of "Wall Work." .

Binding Knee to Nose

With the hands having the support of the wall, the "knee to nose" binding pose can be very effective and deep.
Stretches into the glutes and hamstring from this pose helps challenge the body to sustain it's own weight and toughen the core.

Hands touching the wall while reaching the nose to the knees helps strengthens the muscles along the side of the rib cage, intercostle muscles and under the shoulder blade.

Good breathwork is a must to keep the body centered and grounded while avoiding imbalance and potential for injury.

How To

1. Lie on floor with the crown of the head facing the wall. Allow arms to stretch toward the wall and lightly touch the wall.

2. With strap in right foot, hold strap with hands and shorten the rope while pulling right knee to nose. Bring head up and reach nose to knee recruiting from the abdominal.

3. Press hands into the wall and pull shoulders down to hips as you anchor the strap in your hand to the wall.
Feel the deep stretch in the right hip from the support of the wall.

4. Be sure to exhale all the air out in this stretch and draw your navel to the floor. Gaze eye to the extended leg.

5. Apply 5 breaths and sink deeper into the stretch on each exhalation.

THE FIVE ANCHOR; The Five Barry Method Anchors are used as guidelines to help you understand and apply proper alignment for quick results. When the body and mind experience initial success, it's easy to remain motivated. The five anchors act like stakes. They anchor the body and shift the entire body structure back into proper alignment.

1. HEART POINT: The Heart Anchor is located on the anterior center of the sternum. When applying the Heart Point, allow the tip of your sternum to rise forward and upward causing your shoulders to draw down and back. The five anchors act like stakes. They anchor the body and shift the entire body structure back into proper alignment.

2. SCAPULA POINT: The Scapula Point is located at the lower tips of the scapula (shoulder blades). To engage this point, the tip of the blades needs to be drawn downward toward the hips and inward toward the center of the spine.

3. PUBIC POINT: The Pubic Point is located on the anterior portion of the pubic bone. By tipping the Pubic Point forward and slightly upward, the entire pelvic region is now shifted to the posterior position. This reduces the lumbar curve and shifts the entire spine into a more relaxed, natural state while allowing the navel to scoop to the spine. This alignment will neutralize the pelvic region.

4. CHIN POINT: The Chin Point plays an important role for the five anchors because it acts as a sealer to all the previous points. Without applying the forth point all other points are vulnerable to disengagement. The Chin Point, like all the other points, occupies an isolated location. To apply, lower your chin toward your chest, allowing a small fist size space between the chin and neck. The Chin Point acts as an imaginary connection to the Pubic Point. By keeping the Chin and Pubic Points connected you are encouraging proper alignment of the spine in both passive and active states.

5. FOCAL POINT: The Focal Point is also actively known as "Muscle Memory Contact" in the Barry Method. After the muscles are aligned and the body is centered, direct your eyes toward a specific point or gently gaze between the brows. Focal Point takes you inward. When you master this last stage, it quiets your thoughts and creates a natural neurological change in your nervous system that affects the muscle and mind connections. Just as a proper body alignment aligns your muscles, the Focal Point helps "seal" the image, in your mind—creating a vivid image or identification that is accurate and "familiar" (since the alignment is considered to be in a state of "homeostasis"). As your eyes focus, your mind aligns. Focal Point permits muscle/mind connections, which allow your muscles to identify. When done properly the image is imprinted instantaneously, which will allow the activity to be accurately recruited every time. Memory occurs in the mind not the muscles. This is the formula of Muscle Memory Contact™.

Pranayama (yogic breathing), the formal practice of controlling thebreath, lies at the heart of yoga. It has a mysterious power to soothe and revitalize a tired body, a flagging spirit, or a wild mind. The ancient sages taught that prana, the vital force circulating through us, can be cultivated and channeled through a panoply of breathingexercises. In the process, the mind is calmed and rejuvenated. - Yoga Journal

Section 4: Nine Clever Binding Poses
04:29



Binding Open Arm Squat

This exercise is packed with many great benefits. Deep squats and chest opener with the strap will help you build a solid core and tone muscles along the mid back and shoulders. This routine is also great for aligning your hips and shoulders.
By holding the straps in your hands and using the wall as a solid source to anchor, one is able to tone the erector spinae muscles quickly and efficiently that runs from the base of the head down to the tailbone. These muscles are embedded deep along the spine and if you can break down the tension along these muscles, you are healing the entire spine for full range of motion and flexibility.

Use your breath to synchronize your movement and purify your body while creating flexibility in the tightest area of your body, your spine.

How To

1. Stand with your feet hip width apart and back facing the wall.

2. Hold bands in both hands and draw shoulder blades together and down toward your hips while touching fingernails to the wall in the standing position.

3. Gaze eyes across room.

4. Lower body to a swat and draw the strap down to the mid back. Squat as though you are almost sitting on a stool and make sure that your feet are planted and your knees stacked above your feet.

5. When rising from the squat exhale and place fingers back onto the wall to re activate the contraction of the spine.

6. Apply 5 breaths and sink deeper into the stretch on each exhalation.

Binding Forward Bend

One of the best way to loosen your hip joints and create more flexibility in your spine is by loosening your hamstring.

The Binding Forward Bend uses both the yoga straps and wall to help anchor the hands and feet so that the stretch is targeting to desired area, the hamstring. The benefit of using the strap is having the ability to wrap the strap around the hips so that one can rotate the hips anteriorly which will elongate the leg muscles.

How To

1. Sit on the floor in Seated Staff Pose with feet pressing into the wall and straps wrapped under the feet. Breath in deeply and lengthen spine.

2. On exhalation lean body forward and grasp strap to press chest to knees. Holding onto the strap, use the side torso to pull straps to hips. Keep shoulders away from the ears.

3. Have the straps press into the balls of the feet stretch the hamstring deeper. Continue to allow the tailbone to extend away from the feet to open the hips.

4. Apply 5 breaths and sink deeper into the stretch on each exhalation.

Binding Half Lotus Forward Bend

One of the best way to loosen your hip joints and create more flexibility in your spine is by loosening your hamstring.

The Binding Half Lotus Forward Bend uses both the yoga straps and wall to help anchor the hands and feet so that the stretch is targeting to desired area, the hamstring. From this exercise, crossing one leg across the opposite leg creates a deep stretch within the hip joints. The benefit of using the strap is having the ability to wrap the strap around the hips so that one can rotate the hips anterior which will elongate the leg muscles.

How To

1. Sit on the floor in Seated Staff Pose with feet pressing into the wall and straps wrapped under the feet. Breath in deeply and lengthen spine.

2. Cross your right foot over to the top of the opposing thigh and close to your hip as possible.

2. On exhalation lean body forward and grasp strap to press chest to knees. Holding onto the strap, use the side torso to pull straps to hips. Keep shoulders away from the ears.

3. Make sure that you keep hips stacked horzontially and press the sits boned down equally to the ground.

3. Have the straps press into the balls of the feet to stretch the hamstring deeper. Continue to allow the tailbone to extend away from the feet to open the hips.

4. Apply 5 breaths and sink deeper into the stretch on each exhalation.

Binding Bow and Arrow with Wall

How To


1. Lie on the floor facing the wall and place the left foot on the wall while putting the right foot in the strap.

2. Begin to bring the right knee toward you nose and walk your hands up the strap. Reach the elbows to the opposite wall and keep the neck and shoulders soft.

3. Exhale deep and press the navel to the back of the spine while pressing the left foot in the wall to recruit deeper into the core.

4. Hold the pose and feel a deep stretch in your entire torso.

Binding Half Bow

Binding Half Bow Pose is more of an advanced pose that challenges a solid backbend with the support of the wall and yoga strap.

In order to reap the benefit of a healthy youthful spine (which creates and healthy youthful body) backbends are a must! Using the wall and the strap will help you insure a solid, balanced backbend that is undoubtedly difficult to accomplish.

Keep in mind "stack to contract" making sure that your body is well aligned and that you only stretch to the amount you can hold.

How To

1. Have right foot on the wall with the strap in the left foot and grasp with both hands. On exhalation pull the leg up off the floor and foot toward the head. Focus on opening the right hip.

2. With arms straight, allow the resistance to come from the mid, side torso down by the rib cage. If elbows are bent then the contraction will end up in the neck. Avoid bending the elbow so you can allow the strap to effect the mid back.

3. Balance your body as your right foot is pressed on the wall while you support your left foot with the strap and hands. Allow the backbend to occur in the mid section of the body as you keep the shoulders relax.

4. Apply 5 breaths and sink deeper into the stretch on each exhalation.

How To

1. Sit facing the wall with the left foot pressing into the wall. Have the right knee pressed against the chest and right foot pressed deeply into the ground.

2. Wrap the right arm around the right knee and grab the yoga strap from behind the back. Hold the strap firmly with both hands and bind the body.

3..Keeping shoulders away from ears, lean the chest to the left leg and allow the crown of the head face the wall.

Binding Dancer's Pose

The Dancer's Pose is a balancing pose as well as an excellent hip opener. By using the strap and the wall for stabilization, balance is achieved accurately every time. To build positive muscle memory, accuracy is a must! Using the wall to keep the body centered while lifting leg will help in two ways.

1. Keep the shoulders in line with the hips and prevent straining the (standing leg) hip joint from pulling out of alignment.

2. Using the strap while raising one leg will help "educate" the muscles in the hip joints to begin to open.
By the support of the strap, compensation is avoided and accurate alignment is achieved.

Using the wall and strap in this challenging pose that is so easy to "cheat" help keeps body in proper alignment and restore the tissues that are familiar with the pose.

How To

1. Face the wall with left hand stretched out and touching the wall with a 10' strap in your right foot.

2. Keeping your body strong and maintaining a solid Mountain Pose with my 5 Anchor concept. See "Wall Yoga - The Three Dimensional Yoga".

3. On exhalation balance your body with the support of your left hand and lean your body forward while raising your left arm with strap to the ceiling. Sychronize lowering your body while raising your leg keeping your body steady.

4. Gaze eyes at right hand and feel the stretch rising from the right hip joint to the mid torso making sure not not refrain from breathing.

5. Apply 5 breaths and sink deeper into the stretch on each exhalation.

Binding Pigeon Pose

Binding Pigeon Pose at the wall is an excellent pose to tone the hips and buttocks while stretching in a deep
steady backbend to open the spine.
Using the strap in this routine will help release tension in the quads as well as hip flexors and maintain a healthy hip and spine alignment.

How To

1. Sit facing the wall and fold right leg in front of body and left leg extended to the back. Make certain hips are parallel to the wall.

2. Keeping hips and shoulders stacked, place the left foot into the strap and raise the left foot.

3. Holding the straps in the hands, raise the left foot and press the hands into the wall while keeping the hips relax.
Gradually shorten the strap for a deeper stretch.

4. Keep hands planted on the wall and breath deeply allowing the hips to relax. Have eyes focus on the hands.

5. Take 5 steady breaths and then repeat to the other side.
