YOGA FOR LOW BACK PAIN

Yoga is just one of the various activities you can incorporate into your life to help reduce back pain. It helps to strengthen the abdominal and back muscles, which helps to significantly reduce back pain. Though it's easy for your low back to get tight (one of the many effects of sitting a lot), finding fluidity in your spine helps create better mobility throughout your entire body. This is a very simple, yet effective, supine low back release for those of you suffering from chronic low back pain.

YOGA RECESS FOR PARENTS: SHOULDER OPENING

This video is part of our "Yoga Recess for Parents" series, specifically designed to be a quick break for parents during distance learning. This practice focuses on the shoulders. In most cases, tight shoulders are the result of tight trapezius muscles. The trapezius runs from the back of the head to the lower thoracic spine and also attaches to the shoulder blade. What usually happens when you spend too much time sitting is that the muscles in the front body shorten and those in the back body become weak. Yoga can help you to lengthen the front body and tone the back body so that you can find a more upright posture. This 15-minute sequence will stretch out your shoulders, strengthen your back body and release your hips. Props: 2 Blocks

YOGA RECESS FOR PARENTS: HIP + CORE STRENTHING

This video is part of our "Yoga Recess for Parents" series, specifically designed to be a quick break for parents during distance learning. This practice focuses on the hip flexors and core. Do you ever wonder why the deep muscles in your hips feel so tight all the time? They could be compensating for weak or inhibited hip flexors. The hip flexors not only move the legs, but also stabilize the pelvis and lower back. Hip flexors need to be both supple and strong. This quick yoga recess for parents will help you strengthen your hips as well as your core! Props: 2 Blocks

YOGA RECESS FOR PARENTS IN DISTANCE LEARNING

Recess for adults?  Yes, please!  The transition to distance learning can be challenging for children AND parents! Parents not only need to think differently about how to support their children, but also how to support themselves in the process. This is a quick 15-minute YOGA RECESS FOR PARENTS to stretch all the tense areas in the body, specifically the areas that block you from taking a deep breath. You can do this routine while your little one is at recess or after virtual schooling to decompress. Enjoy side body stretches, spine lengthening and shoulder stretching as you ease your body into taking deep de-stressing breaths.
