This first installment of Ease into Backbending takes you on a journey of opening up your quads, hips, hamstrings, and shoulders, in an effort to reduce tightness that restricts movement into backbends.
Come improve your backbends with me now.
This 37 minute quick yoga stretching routine provides an amazingly deep stretch. A little longer than usual, but worth every extra second.
We're focusing mainly on the legs and hips, but the shoulders, abs, and back get some work in too. Work through this with me now and see how amazingly your muscles have opened up by the end.
This brand new yoga series has us working on our upper body and core strength, practicing arm balances, and stretching our hips, hamstrings, and shoulders. We will be increasing the challenge each week as we move closer to being able to do headstands and handstands.
I am unable to do either freestanding now at the beginning of this journey, so we are working on this together. As the series progresses we will move closer and hopefully be able, or at least be much closer, to successfully and confidently practicing these poses.
Let's get started, try this routine with me now! It takes just under 40 minutes...
This routine focuses on really warming up the legs and opening up the hips and quads to help you get into a full split much more easily. This workout has variations of traditional yoga poses throughout. If any of them are too challenging, stick to the traditional poses. Don't ever go so far outside your comfort zone that you risk hurting yourself. There are many modifications and options for different poses included during the routine, so anyone can make this work them, and we can all do this together. You need just under 40 minutes, come try it with me...
Our muscles store up and hold onto so much awful tension that they can become very sore as this builds up over time. This week's yoga routine focuses on stretching out and opening up tight shoulders, a big area where tension is commonly held. Come ease your worries and stretch it out with me...
