Thread the Needle is one among the different workouts that can help in working your core strength and challenging the body balance. This exercise can be incorporated in Vinyasa yoga pose or the Pilates to help stretch the back and develop balance. Executing the Thread the Needle exercises appropriately at Coquitlam Weight Loss can help you restore the flexibility and posture of the upper and middle back, which often become tight and rounded from the day-to-day activities.
In doing the Thread the Needle exercise, you need to get into a rather modified side plank position. You lie down on your left side propping up on the left forearm and the wrist directly under your shoulder. It is important to get the correct pose when doing this exercise in order to effectively work on your upper, midrange, and lower back.
You will have to start with the hands and knees and take the right arms and then slide it along the floor just under the left underarm as though you are threading a needle. You then bring the head to the ground and the right side of the face touches the floor. Ensure that your head and neck remain relaxed and then try to reach your right hand the farthest you can to the left in order to deepen the stretch.
Feel the twist and the stretch in your abs and side and not the shoulder and neck. Ensure that when you are doing the exercise, you keep a straight line from the right fingertips to the left elbow. Always keep your hips off the ground. In order to complete the stretch with a truly effective stretch, you need to have your left palm directly in the front of the face and then press it firmly into the ground.
Then look up towards the ceiling and as soon as you start doing this, you will feel that areas between the shoulders beginning to open and stretch further. You should feel fantastic from the stretch. You can hold to that position for about 30 seconds or so. Repeat the same step on the other side and ensure you perform at least two sets, each of 30 seconds stretches, on each side of body.

In order to keep your body mobile, flexible, and supple, you need to aim at stretching about 10 to 15 minutes in each day.
