Have you ever tried to stretch and felt like you just weren’t able to get to the right spot to make a lasting difference?
This week’s stretch should help because it has built-in variability to help you find exactly the spot that needs some releasing. One tricky thing about home programs and exercise videos is that people want to be told exactly what to do and how to do it. Believe me, I understand the need for clarity but I would be doing you and all my clients a great disservice if I didn’t help you find something GREATER – and that is your ability to LISTEN to your body and FEEL what is needed. This stretch is a great intro into that process!
This level 2 adductor sequence is actually a combination of a thigh stretch and spinal curls. Watch the video as an example, but please give yourself the GIFT of time and feel into your own body for what is most needed, pausing at any spot that feels tight, sore or stuck!
So you’ve seen the video and now it’s time to try it for yourself. Don’t feel the need to do the right side the same as the left. You might have different areas requiring attention. Check in with your spine, your hips, how the sacrum meets the pelvis as you start to curl forward, tension between your legs and your back – just being CURIOUS and AWARE. You’ll truly gain the most from this if you take at least 3-5 minutes on each side. If you notice one side is tighter than the other, do that side again. Here’s to your most TRANSFORMATIVE stretching!
