Here we integrate the Hundred exercise in the body from the mat to the full Hundred. The Hundred is a total body exercise- all muscles engaged simultaneously while exercising the deep breathing.
The Hundred is our first introduction to finding Opposition in the body and learning to support the extremities from our CENTER (spine, pelvis, ribs)
Muscles Targeted: Abdominals, Diaphragm, accessory respiratory muscles, muscles of the thigh and hip, deep Paraspinals
Other Modifications for discomfort in the neck and lower back: keep head down and reach only one leg out while the other stays bent with foot on the mat.
In the presence of bothersome jaw tension, breathe in and out through the nose only vs. the mouth.
