November is National Peanut Butter Month | Celebrate with Empty Peanut Butter Jar

November 1, 2011

“Nothing takes the taste out of peanut butter quite like unrequited love.”  –Charles M. SchulzCharlie Brown

Empty Peanut Butter Jar is a fun spinal warm-up exercise.

Begin in Table Pose:
Come to your hands and knees
Wrists and Shoulders in alignment
Knees and Hips in alignment
Back in neutral

Imagine you are in a giant, almost empty Peanut Butter Jar.
You need to use your body to get the peanut butter out of the jar.

You can move forward and back,
You can move from side to side.

You can do circles,
You can do a worm like body motion.

Move in anyway that feels right.
