I have been training my clients in the following gentle stretching modules since 2010 with happy results. Before they learn Yoga stretching, they get trained in ‘Focusing on breathing’ (FOB) techniques to induce relaxation, loosen the muscles and reduce stress (1). FOB improves flexibility of the body which is essential for pain free stretching.
Still postures – On waking up, lying on the bed
These are a series of still postures done on the bed, immediately on waking up. They positively impact on how we feel during the day. Please read the instructions before you practice from the video (3). It shows the postures being done on the floor but these are to be done on the bed itself, as soon as you wake up.
Gentle stretching movements – Off the bed, seated
These are a series of still postures and movements. They gently stretch the muscles of the eyes, face, neck, shoulders, arms and legs. Please read the instructions before practicing them from the video (4).
Loosening streetches from Yoga – Standing
These are a series of simple movements (5). They gently move all the joints and tone up the muscles.
