Stretching is a big deal at our house. One of us is often rolling around on the floor or propping a leg on the deck railing. Jenny will yell to me from across the house: “Mom, look, I’m doing a yoga pose!” But if we get settled on the couch before any of this happens, we’re pretty much there for the duration of the evening. That’s when these poses come in handy. You don’t have to be a devoted yogi or super bendy to do these couch yoga poses. Just stretch a little bit every day, and you will be amazed at the results:
- Rock the Baby: open hips and stretches inner thighs
- Heron Pose: stretches hamstring and low back
- Cobblers Pose: stretches inner thigh and back
So, next time you reach for your remote, throw in a stretch! Just remember–don’t push, don’t strain, listen to your body and breathe.
