Binding yoga poses are shoulder-intensive. Be sure that your shoulders are strong and you can do these poses without any pain. If you feel any pain, please do not continue.

Binding Yoga Poses – 30-Minute Routine

You will start the Vinyasa flow for the binding yoga poses by opening up your shoulders. Lay on your belly and extend your left arm. Bend it while it’s facing the floor and roll over your left ear, left shoulder, and left hip. Do the same for your right side.

Next is the puppy pose stretch. This will give your shoulders more stretch and more opening up so that you can properly do the binding yoga poses in this routine. Then, you will transition to a table top pose to do thread the needles. Do this for both sides.

Transition to downward dog so your body can get a full-body stretch. Check out the rest of the video on the binding yoga poses you will do for this routine!
