Superficial Back Line

This is a “Big Bang” Stretch for all the muscles of the back side of the body. It is the Uttanasana pose in Yoga and it improves flexibility for all seated sports such as Dragon Boat, Outrigger and Surfski paddling.

Lateral Line

Here are 2 version of the Half Moon yoga pose that stretches the lateral line. The option helps put emphasis on the section of the trunk that you want or need mobility in.

Spiral Line

This is a “Big Bang” Stretch that enhances the twisting motion and ability in paddlers. If you can’t do it, you must work towards this! Break it down first to an easier pose and practise regularly.

Spiral, Lateral and Back Lines

This is the second of the ultimate “Big Bang” stretch sequence for paddling that you can perform while standing. I present 2 versions of the stretch which enhance the paddler’s entry position.

Superficial Front Line and Spiral Line

These are 2 “Big Bang” yoga stretches for paddlers, the yoga pose Warrior I and a combination pose of the superficial front line and spiral line and gall bladder meridian.
