This stretch sequence is a full body program that will not only provide your body with movements that assist with mobility and flexibility, but also provide your body with an opportunity to relax and recover.
Given that we are holding the stretches a lot longer than normal, this enables us to go deeper with the stretches, which will also stretch the fascia, which is a type of connective tissue that runs in and around your muscles.
During each stretch take the opportunity to close your eyes, slow your breathing and focus on your breath or visualise a place or situation which brings you calm and joy.
Move through the sequence 1 to 3 times, depending on your available time.
Be gentle with your body and only take each stretch to the point of tension. Then, if through your breathing the muscle relaxes, only then take the stretch a bit deeper.
Equipment Recommended: Chair, Stopwatch or Clock, Towel, Theraband or Strap, Cushions or a Mat for comfort
