Stretches To Keep You Moving During The Day

May 10, 2021

Stretches to keep you moving during the day.

These are some of my favourite stretches to help keep you stretched, mobilised and calm during your working day – give yourself a 5 minute stretch break – you deserve it!

If you attend my virtual classes you should definitely be familiar with these moves…

Standing Roll Down.

So simple but so effective. It’s a great way to get your spine moving and also to check in and see how you are feeling in your body.

Start on all fours – round through your spine (like an angry cat!) and then open out in to an extension (like a cow?!) with your gaze coming forward. Move slowly bit by bit through your spine.

Exhale to round and Inhale to open up.
