Stretches

Hope you all stay warm and dry this weekend, and remember to stretch! As we move into the winter months, our bodies tend to tighten up. Even if you have no time for class, which is always a misleading statement 'cuz we can make the time for anything that feels important!, do this:

 

Reach up to the sky
Fold over in half, knees bent if needed
Slowly, inhale and come on back up.

Repeat a few times, really hearing your inhale and exhale.

 

Then hang forward, making some contact with your toes or ankles, ( shins, calves, whatever you can reach!)
And let your EXHALE bring you more length and release in the backs of your thighs.

If you still have time, do the same thing sort of, sitting down.
And then maybe even a bridge posture or two.

And if you have no idea what I am talking about, COME PRACTICE IN PERSON!
