3 Yoga Moves to Quickly Improve Posture & Flexibility

Over the last year, I’ve been seeing a chiropractor to correct some lower back and hip issues. Today Stayfree has sponsored our post and has encouraged me to share some ways I’ve been able to benefit from yoga. My chiropractor instructed me do was a prescribed set of daily yoga exercises to enhance flexibility and strengthen my core. I wasn’t convinced at first that such small movements would change much but I have seen amazing improvement. Especially when I do them on a regular basis.yoga moves¬†The 3 recommended poses my chiro recommended were easy to do and didn’t require a ton of space. This meant I could practice them easily throughout the day during a work break or when I traveled. I could tell a difference in my sleep and less tightness in my lower back within just a couple of weeks. Curious to know which ones they were? Ok, I’ll share ūüôā

2. Balancing TableTop

3. Plank /Low plank

I was amazed at how quickly my posture improved and my flexibility increased. I am still visiting my chiropractor but less frequently and am able to schedule more time in between visits now. Because I have really been able to appreciate how yoga helps the whole body I wanted to add other poses in too. Last week I shared the Stayfree promotion in partnership with Gaiam TV. I’ve been able to access¬†FREE online yoga classes for 30 days- it’s still going on! You ¬†can sign up until March 12, 2015 (click here for more info!) I really like that that it has examples & explanations of each pose. Since I’m training for a half marathon coming up soon adding in strength and flexibility really so important.

Ya know those really hectic weeks, where life just seems to take everything you’ve got? I’ve had one of those weeks. I couldn’t put my finger on exactly what it was but something like that was just off. I needed a little time to regroup. Unfortunately, my schedule wasn’t allowing for much downtime. I just knew I needed to find a little calm in the all the crazy.

I was out running errands at my favorite store & picking up a few essentials. I noticed Stayfree was offering 30 days of FREE yoga classes online with a membership to My Yoga on Gaiam TV when you purchase any Stayfree product either online or in-store.  I placed those in the cart & took this as my sign to regroup to find the calm that I was desperately needing.
