Before we begin, I am not a doctor; just a mama basing this information off my own experiences as a mother, athlete, and prior research. Please consult your doctor before proceeding with any of the following information!
Hi Mama! You are about to watch a simple, full body, stretch progression for releasing tension after working out. Please note that I am moving through these stretches exceptionally fast for the sake of a “to-the-point video”. You should always hold each stretch for AT LEAST 20 seconds in order to get its full benefits.
This stretch progression is very similar to what I give my dance students! I enjoy this one because one; it’s easy, two; it covers the whole body, and three; it doesn’t take much time to get your full stretch on!
While completing these stretches, be sure to remember to breathe! Keep in mind breathing and relaxing into your stretches, creating a deeper and more purposeful stretch.
Lastly, pay attention to my body alignment as that is key to correctly stretching your muscles without injury. For example, during my first stretch, my feet are aligned with my shoulders, they are parallel (facing forward), my hands are close to my feet, and my forehead is pressing into my knees.
