The hips are an often neglected and often the most problematic area of our body. Let Lucas show you effective stretching to target your hips. Your hips are one of the most challenging areas to open up as there are over a dozen of muscles and connective tissues supporting these huge joints. The key here is to practice long, slow and deep... try to relax into these powerful postures.
This gravity yoga session targets hamstrings, providing a targeted stretch to help improve flexibility. The hamstrings are a set of muscles on the back of your legs and they get tight from running, sitting at a desk and general inactivity. When your hamstrings are tight, it can limit you in just about every other physical activity Tight hamstrings are also associated with most lower back injuries.
15 minutes of stretching and strengthening the back with Lucas will make a world of difference for anyone who struggles with back pain and even those who don't. Most people stopped doing backbends in elementary school... but why? Your body is meant to bend forward, backward, twist and curl. If you haven't done a backbend in a while, you'll feel these postures pretty intensely.
Anyone who spends large parts of their day at a desk or computer will appreciate Lucas' shoulder stretches. If you type on a keyboard, commute to work or suffer from stress, chances are high that your shoulders are really tight. Stiff shoulders can lead to neck pain and even more common, the slouched posture associated with aging. Opening your shoulders is intense Â€Â”but it's worth it!
This is a great way to improve flexibility and strengthen the joints that are most prone to spraining and difficulties These poses are perhaps the most awkward of the entire Gravity Yoga sequence, but they are very important because they target areas that are often neglected: the wrists, twisting tissues, and ankles.
