Day 6: Pecs & Hamstrings

35 min - Practice


In today's practice, with the assistance of the wall, we find opening in the pectoral muscles (pecs), outer legs, and hamstrings. We close with a guided meditation to hone our skills of listening inward.
What You'll Need: Mat, Wall, Blanket, Strap

Loving your sweet, kind approach here. To me, using the wall adds a playful quality to the practice, as if one is child trying all different ways to move around and surprise itself in the process. Lots of fun!
Hi Jenny! Thank you! I just love using props and walls for feedback in my practice and also finding a good boundary that I can work with! So happy you are finding some play with this.

Perfect way to end a hectic day. Really felt relief in my shoulders from the wall exercises and relief in my hips from the floor twists.  The strap work opened my hamstrings gently and the meditation made me mindful of going within to,find peace clarity and silence. Namaste.
Glenford Love hearing this. Hope we can continue to practice together. Namaste Glenford.

Martha Love this Martha! I hope we can practice self love with these practices! Love!

Amazing pec and shoulder openers! I am weight lifting followed by climbing and this active recovery is exactly what my body is craving! Thanks for the slow and mindful practice that is easy to plug into my day.
