For the final week of November we will be performing an Inner Thigh Self Massage, which will also incorporate a slight spinal twist stretch.
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 third week of November, we will be performing a very Deep Squat Stretch. You will feel this stretch in your inner thighs, ankles and lower back.
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!
For the last week of October we will be performing a Partner Twist Stretch. This movement will stretch your outside hip muscles and also the lower back to mid back muscles.
As we approach Sweetest Day (on the 21st), this is a great week to grab your favorite stretching partner and perform the Assisted Easy Seated Stretch! But first, warm up by trying October’s first two stretches. Doing so will help to prepare both partner’s hips for this week’s stretch.
Our second week of partner stretching is an Assisted Side Angle Stretch. You will feel this stretch in the sides of your body, but it also has a slight twist that will stretch your back. Since this stretch mimics a side lunge, it will stretch your inner thighs too!
Welcome to my favorite season, Fall! Since Sweetest Day is in October, I thought it would be fun to do a month of partner stretches. So grab the sweetest person in your life for the next few weeks of fun!
We will be performing the Triangle Pose for our last week of our sink stretches. This one is taken from yoga and will stretch the sides of your body and possibly your hamstrings.
For the third week of September, we will be performing the Reverse Plank Stretch. This movement will stretch your chest, biceps and some front torso muscles.
