The benefits of stretching



Dear Students and friends,

You will hear me say that your body requires a certain amount of “warm up” time during exercise.
Stretching can also in itself be an entire practice.
Here is a nice easy fifeteen minute routine for this class.

Begin on your mat feet hip distance apart do about five standing sun salutations

Move to table top position on your knees and start cat/cow combination for five breathes

Now spice it up to standing sun salutation down to rag doll hold one minute before releasing into down dog

Hold your dog and really release both knees and move your head side to side

When your ready move into half pigeon

Always remembering the key is to work each side and hold your pose 30-60 seconds or longer

Tonight hold it longer really let your hips open up :-)

Here is some nice music to set the mood
