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! 😄
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.
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!
