Dynamic tension is created as we pull one part of our body in the opposite direction of another part of our body.
When we extend our arms upward, dynamic tension is created by reaching and extending our sides, our arms, our neck and head up toward the sky while our legs and feet are pushing downward into the earth.
When we extend our arms outward, dynamic tension is created by reaching and extending our arms and fingertips in opposite directions.
When we move into a lunge, we feel the gentle pull in our thighs as we create dynamic tension between our front and back legs.
As we keep our mind engaged with each pose and movement, we maintain dynamic tension throughout our practice.
We maintain dynamic tension on the exhale even as we allow our body to relax.
