Vitality, Flexibility and More with Plate Balancing Exercise



If you are feeling stiff or lethargic a little stretching can make a big difference. Usually when you stretch, you stretch in straight lines. But have you noticed that the body is not really made up of straight lines? You can get a better stretch if you are using the natural curves and rotational patterns of the body. We have an exercise that will help you do that. It’s called the Plate Balancing Exercise. We call it that because the exercise involves the rotation of an open palm facing up, as if balancing a plate on your hand and keeping it from dropping.
You rotate your hand in a big infinity loop, around your side and over your head.

With this one exercise you can improve flexibility all over your body, as movements in the shoulders, spine and hips are integrated with gentle movement of the wrists, elbows and knees. If you keep at it, you can work up a sweat and maybe even burn some fat. Try it for just ten minutes and feel the difference! Learn more here.


You can try it out in person at one of our Open Classes. Our next Open Classes are scheduled for:

    Shim Sung™: Self-Discovery

    Venue : Dahn Yoga Cerritos Center
    Do you feel something in your life needs to change, but you don't know what to do or where to start? For anyone who truly wants to make a change, this program is crucial for uncovering exactly where you are and setting the intention for where you want to go. Through the Finding Your True Self workshop, you will have the opportunity to actually connect with your True Self, the "real you", underneath all the layers of habits, judgements, emotions, and memories that we have mistakenly identified as who we really are. Through this workshop, you will develop a deeper understanding of yourself and the people closest to you so that you can regain self-confidence, eliminate negative patterns, and achieve more harmonious relationships.
