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!
For the second week of September we will be performing the Squat with Kitchen Sink Stretch. This stretch will give you some traction through your spine and the sides of your body. It will also stretch your low back and into the outsides of your hips.
Welcome to September’s weekly stretch blog. In the three years since this blog started, we have done most every stretch imaginable. This includes everything but the kitchen sink – until now. That’s right, this month’s stretches will focus on using the kitchen sink! Why you might ask? The kitchen sink provides stability, as well as traction for these stretches. Using props is a great way to facilitate optimal stretch!
For the final week of August’s dynamic stretching, we will be performing Half Moon Arm Circles. The name is derived from yoga, as the first stage is the Half Moon Pose. You will feel this stretch in the sides of the body, and it will also go through the range of motion of the arm.
For the fourth week of August’s dynamic stretching, we will be performing the Hamstring Extend and Release Stretch. This stretch is very similar to week three, but will only focus on stretching of the hamstrings and calf muscles.
