Here is some information of the program:
Please read the guideline and additional information about this challenge in the button below
The program is designed for 5 days. It includes 5 videos. The first 4 videos are about 15-20 minutes long and the last video is about 55 minutes long. Each video focuses on different body area - hamstrings, hips, back and shoulders and the two last videos include a full body stretching. If you need to rest in-between the workouts, please do so and come back when you are ready.
Most of the videos are equipment-free and it is recommended to use a mat or a towel for all the videos. Depending on your flexibility level, you might be needing to use some supporting props, as indicated in the guidelines below.
Make sure to wear comfortable clothes and no shoes.
All the videos are located in one page but please work your way from video #1 to video #5. You can replay the videos as many times as you wish. Ideally, do a 15 minutes stretch 4 times a week after your regular workout or before bedtime, as a stretching maintenance. The 55 minutes video can be done once a week or once every other week.
Keep in mind that stretching is a process! Always work within the limits of YOUR body! If something doesn’t feel right on your body, just skip it for now. With time, as you stretch your muscles, the exercises will become easier and you will be able to hold on to the poses. Allow your body to ease into the exercises at your own pace! If you find the exercises too hard, use one of the props mentioned above and support your body.
In each video we start with the a Breathing method and a warm up. Each video address different body areas and you may find that the stretches will get more intense as you go. But you may also find that some of the stretches are easy for you. This is why I offer modification options so that you can choose to make the stretching more or less intense.
TIPS TO GET YOU STARTED
Set a time and place to do the exercise. Find a quiet place you can work out at ease without interruptions.
Stick to the video. Even if it is too easy for you, you can hold each pose between 2-5 minutes. Never more than 5 minutes. There is just no benefit to holding it longer.
Don't give up! If you had to skip a day, or if you can't hold the entire time, it doesn't mean you need to give up. Start again and pick up from where you left off. Adjust the exercises as needed to support your body. You should feel a 7 out of 10 stretching sensation. Remember that the mental challenge is harder than the physical challenge.
Together is better! Workout it with a friend or a family member, anyone that can keep you motivated and you enjoy working out with. It will help sticking out to the routine.
