It’s Therapeutic Yoga Stretches & Exercises Day in my Whole Body Wellness Challenge for beginners! This real-time therapeutic yoga routine is simple, but effective in helping relax & relieve stress and anxiety.
For the warm up, we will go right into diaphragmatic breathing or belly breathing. This is a great way to relax the body, and it’s great to do these through all the stretches.
Starting with a seated cat/cow, seated trunk rotation, seated piriformis stretch, seated hip flexor stretch, modified eagle pose, and a seated trunk rolldown will help get the back, hips, neck, and shoulders moving.
Now for some quadruped stretches to help the body relax. Cat/cow and child’s pose will help loosen the muscles and calm them down.
Finally, a corpse pose, or savasana, is a great way to finish up a relaxing routine.
Congratulations on finishing Day 10 of my Whole Body Wellness Challenge! You did it 🙂
