a quick (gentle) yoga sequence

04Mar15

Got 5 minutes? And a clean carpeted floor?

Good! That’s all you need for this! If you have MS… or if you have a busy life… (I see you out there, sheepishly raising your hand) there’s a tendency for hunched posture. (Those of us with MS, moreso, as we lose strength in the stabilizing spinal muscles that hold us up.)

Here’s a quick 5 minute yoga sequence from one of the handful of quality channels I subscribe to. It’s labeled as a full body stretch, but it does focus on the chest. Open chest = less hunching! And… you’ll feel better if you stop to do this during your day. Good stuff all around!

Sarah Beth Yoga’s Quick 5 Minute Full Body Stretch

Here’s my challenge: find 5 minutes to do it today. Then, post in the comments about how good you felt afterward!

(And, while I’m not a doctor, I’m a rehab Pilates instructor, so I do have to advise you against the prone twist if you have osteoporosis or any spinal fragility… disclaimer, disclaimer!)

Enjoy this yummy stretch! 🙂
