Holiday time is here.
It has been a pleasure working with you all in 2019, and we are all looking forward to well earned break away. Enjoy the change of pace, new adventures and time to rest & restore. Here’s a few home exercises that you can do while on holidays or on your staycation…
- Cat Stretch
Come to a kneeling position, with even weight between the hands and knees. As you breathe out arch your spine into a curve (picture the Sydney Harbour bridge), as you breathe in open your chest and extend your spine into a concave shape. Use this movement to connect with your breath, mobilise your spine and soften tension in your shoulders and back.
- Roll down
Stand with your feet hip-width apart and shoulders relaxed. As you breathe out tuck your chin to chest and slowly roll your spine down from the top of the spine to the tailbone. Soften your shoulders and spine at the bottom (knees soft) as you inhale. As you exhale, return to standing with a slow rolling motion through the spine.
- Roll, roll, roll
Mobilise and release tightness in your shoulders, upper back and glutes using your roller or massage ball.
Enjoy your summer break and rest well.
We look forward to seeing you in 2020.
