Yoga Routine

Yoga stretches

NOTE:  This routine takes 5-7 minutes. I do it 4-5 times daily. It relieves my hip and knee pain and actually causes me to “grow” about an inch taller. Completing the sequence every time I use the bathroom is a good reminder!  😄


Hugging Knees

I do this pose and sway my legs slightly right and then left ten times.

 

Legs Up Pose

I circle my arms around the back of legs and sway my legs slightly right and then left ten times.


Cat and Cow Poses


Hip Circles

I circle my hips 10 times in each direction.

Back-bend Pose Facing a Wall

10 times, counting to ten each time.  I keep my feet flat to get a better hamstring stretch.

Back-bend pose against a chair back or counter

I do this pose 10 times, counting to ten each time, and alternating from leg to leg. I keep the foot of the weight bearing leg flat, and point the other foot back while arching my back into a gentle back bend. I put my hands on the sink counter for support. A chair back can also be used.  Sorry about the picture  I cannot get it to be in the right direction!
