Many variations are taught. The foundation is a strong center and a stable sacrum and pelvis. The full expression of the twist happens where updog and cobra happen. Emphasize the breath, and give your internal organs a nice squeeze. Detox, people!

Here are some classes featuring Twisting Crescent.
Our bodies show up for us in SO many ways, physically and emotionally. Often times, we tuck those unprocessed energies away in our muscles and joints. Twisting the body is an excellent way to detoxify your internal organs along with your muscles and joints while freeing yourself up energetically. Join Dhaujee for a quick detoxifying and energizing flow where you'll twist it out!
This is an all-levels class where beginners are welcome and experienced yogis will also get a deep and mindful practice.
Some poses will feel wonderful and others may bring up resistance. Resistance often happens when we approach a place where we carry tension, whether it's physical or emotional. Resistance is different from pain. If you experience pain, that is a signal to back off, use props or modify in order to find a variation of the pose that works for your body so you can breathe deeply.
Resistance is the emotion that might creep up if you find yourself in a shape that offers you the opportunity to soften and unwind. Sometimes we're scared to let go. See if you can breathe deeply into any resistance and give your body the chance to release so you create the space to receive.
