❓DO YOU COMPENSATE IN COBBLER POSE❓
How do you feel about this pose? For me this pose is one of the most difficult yoga poses. I spent years trying to figure out how to progress in it or at least start to feel comfortable when I enter it. There are people for whole this pose comes naturally, and that is not my case.
❓HOW DO WE COMPENSATE IN COBBLER POSE❓
When we get into the pose Gavin in mind that our knees should touch the floor and we should start to bend forward first thing we notice is that getting those knees down while keeping the feet together and as close as possible to the body is not easy at all. At that moment our body finds a way around the blockage that is usually located directly in our hips and we let the pelvis tilt back hunch our back maybe even let the feet open and bam our knees go a little bit lower and we even feel like we did start to bend forward.
❓ WHY DO WE COMPENSATE IN COBBLER POSE❓
🚫 Not knowing what we should do in the pose.
➿ Lack of flexibility in external hip rotators
➿ Lack of mobility in our pelvis
➿ Lack of flexibility in hip adductors (inner thighs)
💪 Lack of strength in hip abductors (butt and outer thighs)
💪 Lack of strength in the core.
➿ Lack of flexibility in back
COMPENSATIONS ARE SHORTCUTS IN YOGA PRACTICE, THEY ARE NOT WRONG NOR RIGHT. WE ALL DID THEM, AND ARE STILL DOING THEM, DUE TO MANY DIFFERENT REASONS. COMPENSATIONS ARE PART OF YOGA PRACTICE AND THEY ARE HERE TO MAKE US MORE AWARE OF OUR BODY AND OURSELVES. IF YOU SEE THAT YOU ARE COMPENSATING YOU ARE ON THE RIGHT PATH, YOU ARE AWARE 🙌🙏
