Yoga Poses for Knitters & Crocheters -- Poses For Carpel Tunnel!

Today I discovered a post with video included on Lion Brand Yarn's blog called Yoga With Shira: Yoga for Knitters & Crocheters, Poses for Carpal Tunnel! In the blog article I read the following information:
How does yoga relate to crafting? Simply put, the repetitive action of knitting/crocheting causes similar bodily reactions as yoga. Knitting or crocheting, like yoga, slows down the brain, tells the body to go into restore mode and allows time for the body to heal from the inside out. They both reduces levels of cortisol — the stress hormone — and shuts down overactive brain noise. Mindfulness will allow you to stitch longer with deeper awareness and a sense of ease. We’re talking about connection here. Connection to self. Connection to the material you are working with and connection to each other. About cultivating inner peace and a sense of community through activities that bring people together.

So grab a friend, get on the floor and do what you love because this life is all about one thing, working from heart and whenever you come from that place magical things will happen.
Watch the following video from the Lion Brand Yarn blog post (mentioned above) to see stretches for knitters and crocheters.


Until my next post, happy knitting!!
