Stretch + Release

In this sequence, we flow through poses that stretch your spine in all directions and finish with a Progressive Muscle Relaxation.

Yoga is a fantastic antidote for stress and tension. Rarely do we give ourselves a chance to properly relax, restore and unwind.

LEVEL
  • Beginner
OBJECTIVES
  • Loosen up the neck, shoulders and spine.
  • Stretch the chest and upper back.
  • Opens up the hips.
KEY POSES
EQUIPMENT
TIMING
  • This one is perfect to do before bed if you suffer from racing mind or feel knotted up with tightness from the day.
TIP
  • As you sit cross-legged for the first half of the sequence, it’s important that you find a position that is comfortable and in which your spine is straight. The best would probably be to sit on a block or two to raise your hips up and allow them to rotate forwards in their sockets, but a couple of pillows would also do the trick.
