Post workout stretching feels oooooh soooo good!

great hip flexer stretch, but also amazing shoulder stretch
It can be really great to share your yoga/stretching with a friend, loved one, spouse or partner. Try listening to each other's breath as you move through poses together. Listening to the waves of the breath can help to build and create a deep connection and bond with each other.
Try spending just a few moments together on the mat moving through a series of lunges, down dogs...and a few hip openers, like double pigeon. Hey....why not throw in a loving kiss!
Today's practice ~ 10 minutes:
- Down Dog
- Runners Stretch (straight front leg) to Lunge (bend in front knee) - 4x
- Low lunge, back knee down, arms up over head
- Double pigeon
|P.S....tomorrow is hubby & my 3rd year anniversary!! |
Happy 3 crazy, yoga & run/walking filled years to my Hubby!!
