Assemble your own routine from a mixture of the stretches in these videos
This series of four videos is a flowing series of stretches intended to encourage creativity while doing stretching or workout routine. It involves using an optional broomstick handle to deepen the stretches and improve form.
There are 4 videos that include 4 different sequences:
– Sequence A
– Sequence B
– Sequence C
– Sequence D
The sequences become progressively more difficult and longer to execute. In each video, the sequences are performed twice – the first time quite slowly, and the second time a little faster. There are text explanations for how to perform the different stretches/mobilizations.
The only equipment required is the handle of an everyday broom, and an optional yoga mat. There’s no need to perform all of the stretches, and especially not to exert so far into the stretch that it could cause any pain. Slow and gentle should be the approach, and the body should be already warmed up slightly to improve flexibility.
