1. Circling Arms Out

This is a great warm-up stretch that opens your chest and shoulders and gets the blood flowing right away. Think about opening up and stretching out in all directions with your arms.

 

2. Sit Cross-Legged. Lean Forward

A great stretch for your abductors. Make sure your feet are under your knees and not further back. If you are very stiff  you can also move your feet further forward if that is easier, and do not push too hard or lean forward further than is comfortable.

3. Child’s Pose with Resistance

A satisfying stretch for your shoulders and back, the key is to find how far forward your hands need to be in order to stretch fully, so you can have a play around with that.

4. Wideleg Squat

This stretches the inside back of your legs. Try to keep the tension on continuously by squeezing your legs inwards and backwards behind you (without actually moving your feet).

How to Use this Program

This is a great way to learn to use Moving Stretch to boost your flexibility, mobility and even energy levels. People have got amazing results using these techniques and the key is regular, consistent stretching.

Do all of the stretches above every day for 1-3 weeks, up to 6 days a week. We recommend stretching at least 4 days a week to see a change. If you want to extend a routine you can pause the video and complete more reps, if you need to do less, just sit some of the reps out. Typically people do 7-10 reps of each stretch, and 1-3 sets.

I recommend you have a bottle of water handy and also a yoga mat is a plus.
