Hey you guys! Things have been ca-razy lately! I spent all day at the car dealership yesterday (but finally have my own wheels, woop!). I still have no furniture aside from a bed, and my office looks like a bomb went off. I ordered a desk chair and will go look at desks and shelving later today. I am half excited and half feeling like my life is in shambles but I think that's kind of normal when you move.
Anyway! This little sequence was shot this morning in my office. I wanted to do something for the hips because mine have been super neglected and I know it's a common problem among, well, everyone, so I hope you enjoy this as well. For poses 1 - 4, breathe 3-7 full, deep breaths before switching sides. Then for pose 5, supported bridge pose, stay in it as long as you like (3+ minutes) and enjoy the nice little release it gives the low back.
Pose 1: Gentle forward fold variation - you're just going to want to walk the arms out to the side a bit.
Pose 2: Gate pose - feels amazing for the side body and hips. Place the block under the extended leg's foot as shown.
Pose 3: Extended side angle pose.
Pose 4: Hamstring stretch (another practice for hamstrings)
Pose 5: Supported bridge pose.
