Yoga for the Sewing Enthusiast!

Yoga for the Sewing Enthusiast!

Yoga poses to counteract being at the craft table or sewing machine, making all those masks, buff and gaiters!

Need a bit of yoga to counteract being at the craft table, sewing table. After making all those masks, buff, gaiters for protection. Plus lessen the stress a bit too! I host a website for my parents, The Perfect Portable – Singer Featherweight 221 Sewing Machine. This was posted over at that site, and thought it would be nice here too!

  • Seated Twist
  • Interlaced hands up over head
  • Letter “T” arm circles
  • Down Dog hang at the craft table or kitchen counter
  • Seated or lying #4, or Pigeon Pose
  • Cow Face arms with a hand towel

Those quick little poses come to mind for helping ease low back and upper back pain from being at the sewing machine hunched forward so much.
Try it.
Let me know your favorite pose!

Vitamin P

Have you heard of it?  I thought this was neat!

Vitamin P – studies have found that animals can reduce loneliness, increase feelings of social support and boost your mood.
Teddy Dog brings our family such joy.  Also, Vitamin P (P as in Pet) isn’t a real vitamin….it’s just something fun we like to say about the pets in our lives.

I don’t know about you, but when I see ya’ll during the yoga class on Monday night, where we come a bit early to say “Hi” to everyone, that for me, also gives me good feelings of social support, and I do notice I so look forward to it, boosts my mood, and it does lessen loneliness.  Can I call that
Vitamin Y for Yoga?

Discover how to do yoga for low back pain – Online Yoga with Gail

  • I have low back pain.  Scoliosis, disc degeneration, SI Joint dysfunction and some more issues.  So I was on the journey to see how yoga could help me lessen my pain.  I was on a scale from 1-10, often between 7-9.
  • What I did was a lot of research, and took specialized yoga training for low back care.
  • I can now tell you my pain levels are now in the range of 1-3.  Significant progress, to where I no longer take over the counter meds.
  • I work daily a bit to keep my pain levels low.

Please join me in doing this yoga, to help you with your pain issues.
