Let’s Breathe

In this first video, lets take a look at what it feels like and how your body should react when you inhale and exhale.

Hip Flexor Stretches

In this video we will be focused on our hip flexors. I spend a fair amount of time in downward facing dog in this video. For anyone with wrist or shoulder mobility issues or that has trouble holding a down dog, you can substitute for table top on hands and knees instead and/or make a fist and place your knuckles down instead of your palms. You will need a prop such as a yoga block, foam roller, or large rolled up towel or blanket. Do what you can. Be mindful of your body, and kind to yourself, especially your joints. Move slowly in and out of poses. If something doesn't feel right, don't do it. Extra paddling under the knees can be helpful as well. Enjoy.

Leg day Stretches

In this video we will be primarily stretching our lower body, the hips, hamstrings, glutes, quads, and also our back. You will need a prop such as a yoga block or some folded up towels or blanket. Do what you can. Be mindful of your body, and kind to yourself, especially your joints. Move slowly in and out of poses. If something doesn't feel right, don't do it. Extra paddling under the knees can be helpful as well. Enjoy.
