Day 12: Full Body Stretch routine, lengthen & release sore & tight muscles

Instructor: Kristine Chaussard
Level: All Levels
Focus :   

Today is our full body stretch routine to lengthen and elongate the muscles, release fascia, tension, tightness and soreness. Use this stretch day to work on creating more flexibility in the body; to lengthen back out after a long day or week of concentric workouts. You’ll lengthen the lateral lines, side body, hamstrings, piriformis, glute med, low back, thoracic mobility and rotation. This day is part of our Strength Training program for fat loss and lean muscle gain and is an important part of achieving that long and lean silhouette. This full body stretch routine will help sore muscles recover quicker and not remain in any shortened position. These stretches will be active and not passive. We’ll focus a lot on breathing to facilitate blood and oxygen flow and delivery to the tissues.

Equipment Needed :     

Reformer, the Reformer box, and the resistance band. If you do not have the box you can follow the lateral stretches on the mat.

Class Level :     

ALL levels. For everyone!

The Course of this Class :   

Class starts on the short box with lateral stretches, into spinal articulations, and climb a tree. Next, we’ll stretch out our hip flexors and all the legs in the splits. Moving into thoracic rotations and the standing saw. More spine and leg stretches ending with feet in the straps. Class is just a tad longer than our typical 30-40 minutes but enjoy it and take the time if you can!

This full body stretch routine while active moves in an ebb and flow, focusing on breathing in and through each stretch. Class is mindful and slow.
