Santa Clause may only work one night a year, but his job is so important that he cannot risk injury during his journey across the globe to deliver gifts on Christmas Eve.
For the third week of December we will be performing a Supine Trapezius Stretch. Supine means lying face up, so this stretch will be performed on the floor. It will stretch your Trapezius muscle, the smaller muscles along the side of your neck, and muscles of the chest.
For the second week of December, we will be performing the Self Trapezius Traction Stretch. You will feel this stretch in your upper trapezius, the muscles in the side of your neck and also a little bit into your bicep.
The holidays can be stressful and many of us hold our stress in our shoulders, causing headaches and clenching of the jaw. This is why December’s weekly stretches will focus on the upper trapezius and muscles along the side of the neck.
For the fourth week of our inner thigh series this November, we will be performing the Frog Stretch. You will feel this stretch from your inner groin to your inner knee. You will need a yoga mat or a blanket for this stretch.
For the second week of November, we will be performing a Sumo Squat Stretch. This stretch is also referred to as a Goddess Squat in the yoga world. You will feel this stretch in your groin and inner thigh muscles. It’s also a strengthening position for your Glutes and Quad muscles!
