Wide Seated Forward Fold is today’s @getstretchy pose! Show my your stretches by tagging me and using #getstretchy Just like yesterday’s post, today will also help you get closer to the middle splits. ♀️ If you are REALLY tight, then fold up a blanket and sit on that while you stretch. Tag your yoga buddy and share the tips!!
•Engage the quads to help strengthen the pose and keep the knees and toes facing up (especially if you're more flexible)
• Feet are flexed to get an extra stretch in feet
•Use a strap if you're tight, and use biceps to pull back as chest goes forward
• Lengthen Spine, open shoulders, and reach chest up to fold down
• Hip bones stay on the floor.
•The body is not engaged anywhere - thighs, biceps, abs
• The stretch is happening from the back and not the legs
• No strap is being used (not necessary though if you're more flexible).

Sound on! Let’s @getstretchy on for your middle splits!! Learn all of my tricks for opening your hips, inner thighs, groin, and hamstrings for the middle splits! And for many other poses Do this stretch at the end of your day for 5 minutes, then carefully guide your legs back together and take a savasana so everything can recents and collect. Do not do this BEFORE a workout, this is best at the end of your day before bed. Learn more yoga with me on ActionJacquelyn.com #getstretchy

Open your hips!! (And low back!) This simple @getstretchy tutorial is bridging the gap between the full posture of Malasana and the modified one by using the block under your hips to slowly open your hips, hamstrings, low back, and inner thighs. Gradually move the block to its side, and eventually you’ll be able to do this yogi squat on your own!! #getstretchy

Remember baby steps! Master hugging elbows towards the midline, pulling navel to spine, hips level with knees and shoulders, and shoulders rolling down the back. Also put your knees down like this during a vinyasa flow so you can really build your foundation in your practice. ActionJacquelyn.com @aloyoga#aloyoga || @getstretchy#getstretchy

INTERMEDIATES- do the pose as shown, hold for 1-2 minutes, and breathe
ADVANCED - do the pose as shown, hold for 2-3+ minutes, and breathe
Carefully come out of the pose and let yourself rest in savasana for 3 minutes before moving around to let your spine settle back in. Listen to your body, consult your doctor, never do anything that causes sharp pains
