A few weeks ago, I brought you Yoga for Flexibility Part 1. I hope you enjoyed that video and felt encouraged that even if flexibility isn’t your strong point, you can still do yoga. I have been teaching yoga for almost a decade now and lack of flexibility is the most common thing I hear from people as to why they haven’t started a practice. If you haven’t watched Yoga for Flexibility Part 1, I highly recommend you do so before moving on to Part 2. Yoga for Flexibility Part 2 will focus on our hamstrings and quadriceps which also works well for back release. Good flexibility prevents injuries and improves your posture, balance, and strength. As you get older, the most flexible you stay, the easier it is to move around and the healthier your body will feel. With that being said, let’s get started with this week’s video sequence, Yoga for Flexibility Part 2!
This sequence is approximately 45 minutes long and is great to do anytime.
- Yoga mat
- Comfortable clothing
- Yoga blocks (suggested but not required)
- Blankets (suggested but not required)
This video is great for everyone whether you are brand new to yoga or have been doing it for many years. Modify more difficult poses as needed.
- Silence your phone. The whole idea is to disconnect completely for a few minutes.
- Grab your yoga mat and props if needed
- Find a quiet space to set up. Preferably away from distractions and use the same spot each time for practice.
Once you have completed the sequence, we encourage you to sit silently for a few moments. Practice this sequence in combination with Yoga for Flexibility Part 1 at least 2-3 times a week to see a noticeable difference in your flexibility.
