Does your whole body feel blah 😩? Liven it up with a 💗💗💗 Full Body Yoga Sequence! - - Today, yoga expert, 🤩 @Maryoscher, demonstrates a quick, 5 minutes sequence to get your whole body feeling loosey-goosey 🤙🏻. - - 🖐🏼5 MINUTE FULL BODY STRETCH🖐🏼 . 🙌🏼Save this video for next time you need a quick stretch head to toe! . 🧘🏼♀️SEATED TWIST & CAT/COW: Sit comfortably & with a tall spine. Twist and gaze over the shoulder. For cat/cow: Pull the chest forward & squeeze shoulders onto the back. Then pull shoulders forward spreading apart the shoulder blades. Breathe and move slowly between poses! . 💕FORWARD FOLD & HALF LIFT: My go-to hammy stretch! Bend the knees if you need to. On the lift keep the back as flat as possible. Tailbone slightly lifts up & shoulders come onto the back lifting your heart. . ✨UPDOG or COBRA: Two options here! Find which one feels good for you or switch it up. Both poses focus on lengthening the neck, pulling the heart forward & squeezing shoulders onto the back! . 💗MOVING DOWN DOG: You can stretch a lot from this single pose! Bend one knee at a time to stretch the legs. Bend both knees & lift hips high to stretch the shoulders & arms. Lift one leg at a time to stretch legs & hips. Get creative here 😜 Move and breathe!! . 😁DEEP LUNGE & RUNNERS STRETCH: I like to try different arms in the deep lunge. Sometimes add a backbend too! Keep the front knee over ankle and if this bothers the lower knee, add a blanket for extra cushion! Runners stretch for the hammies! Use a block in both hands if you need some lift. Focus on a long spine and tilt the hips forward. . 🙋🏼♀️HEYYY what tutorials should I make next??! Let me know in the comments below!🙋🏼♀️
