Do This: ⁣

➡ Start standing upright, circle both hands around
➡ Keep hands together while going around and only separate them by necessity overhead

Do This: ⁣

➡ Use a wall, tree, shelf to lean against.
➡ Keep your back nice and long and keep your core engaged - don't let your lower back arch, focus on keeping the stretch in your upper back and shoulders

Similar to the table pose exercise, start with legs apart. Place your hands on your hamstring and use them to pull yourself into the stretch, while also pulling your back into a straighter position.

As you fold over, slide along with your hands until you reach your ankles. Grab them and pull yourself deeper into a standing forward fold. Hold for a pause before you go back up.

Goal is to elongate the spine and keep legs straight.

 

Do This: ⁣

➡ Use a chair, table, or wall for support
➡ Grab your foot and pull your leg back behind you
➡ Tuck your hip to keep lower back from arching and target the quad
➡ Then move your leg around in a circular motion to loosen the quad.

This is a light stretch to loosen everything, no need to push!

 

Start sitting with feet together. The distance between crotch and your heels is the same as the distance between your knuckles and elbow, making it easy to measure with your arm as you set up.

Do This: ⁣
