Spinal Mobility & Flexibility

Spinal Mobility & Flexibility

Mobilize the spine with bridging. Using the abdominals to initiate, curl the tail and peel the spine up slowly - imagine a string of pearls being lifted, one pearl at a time off of the mat.

Add some self-massage to the low-back and hamstrings to prepare the muscles and connective tissue to stretch.

Forward Fold stretches the whole posterior chain: calves, hamstrings, waist, low, mid and upper back and neck.

**set the timer on your phone and hold the stretch for 1-3 minutes. (Feel free to come in and out of it until you can stay in it safely and comfortably. )

Consistency is the key!  It took time for our bodies to develop some of its faulty movement patterns and stuck postural issues, which have led to pain, and it takes some time to re-train our bodies.
