Yoga EVO Stretching Strap with loops Flexibility

1
00:00:00,230 –> 00:00:03,300
hi my name is Maureen with yoga Evo and

2
00:00:03,300 –> 00:00:06,060
today I have a flexibility routine for

3
00:00:06,060 –> 00:00:08,910
you so get your yoga Evo straps out get

4
00:00:08,910 –> 00:00:16,079
on your mat and let’s get started the

5
00:00:16,079 –> 00:00:18,180
first movement we have is just a nice

6
00:00:18,180 –> 00:00:19,350
forward bend

7
00:00:19,350 –> 00:00:21,660
I love forward bends because it is a

8
00:00:21,660 –> 00:00:24,060
whole body routine so we’re going to

9
00:00:24,060 –> 00:00:27,240
step on our strap evenly in the center

10
00:00:27,240 –> 00:00:29,849
just nice and even make sure you got

11
00:00:29,849 –> 00:00:34,079
that yoga Evo label looking right at you

12
00:00:34,079 –> 00:00:35,550
from here we’re going to stand up nice

13
00:00:35,550 –> 00:00:38,180
and straight our feet are going to be

14
00:00:38,180 –> 00:00:40,469
shoulder-width apart to start off with

15
00:00:40,469 –> 00:00:42,899
we’re going to gently pull ourselves

16
00:00:42,899 –> 00:00:46,170
down if you bring them straps closer to

17
00:00:46,170 –> 00:00:47,789
you in the center you can focus on

18
00:00:47,789 –> 00:00:50,190
grabbing some of the handles and I

19
00:00:50,190 –> 00:00:51,809
really love these handles it’s what

20
00:00:51,809 –> 00:00:53,520
makes the strap so unique you want to

21
00:00:53,520 –> 00:00:54,780
make sure your back is nice and straight

22
00:00:54,780 –> 00:00:58,410
if you’re here and you feel it great

23
00:00:58,410 –> 00:01:00,570
breathe here for five to six deep

24
00:01:00,570 –> 00:01:05,309
breaths if you want to pull forward make

25
00:01:05,309 –> 00:01:07,080
sure that back is nice and straight legs

26
00:01:07,080 –> 00:01:09,180
are nice and straight feet your weight

27
00:01:09,180 –> 00:01:11,159
is evenly distributed in between your

28
00:01:11,159 –> 00:01:14,340
feet you’re getting some nice deep

29
00:01:14,340 –> 00:01:19,650
breaths here pulling yourself closer to

30
00:01:19,650 –> 00:01:20,369
the ground

31
00:01:20,369 –> 00:01:23,040
I like to focus on my belly button to

32
00:01:23,040 –> 00:01:24,600
the tops of my thighs and instead of

33
00:01:24,600 –> 00:01:26,250
forehead to the knees that kind of

34
00:01:26,250 –> 00:01:28,950
breeds sort of a poor posture or bad

35
00:01:28,950 –> 00:01:31,500
arch think of belly button down to the

36
00:01:31,500 –> 00:01:34,170
tops of thighs the most important thing

37
00:01:34,170 –> 00:01:36,869
with flexibility is that you bring

38
00:01:36,869 –> 00:01:39,270
yourself to the brink of discomfort you

39
00:01:39,270 –> 00:01:41,430
should never feel any sharp pain or

40
00:01:41,430 –> 00:01:42,800
joint pain

41
00:01:42,800 –> 00:01:45,140
but if you feel your muscles start to

42
00:01:45,140 –> 00:01:48,020
tense up and got a sort of a burning hot

43
00:01:48,020 –> 00:01:50,870
pain that’s where you want to be and if

44
00:01:50,870 –> 00:01:53,380
you can hold it

45
00:01:53,380 –> 00:01:58,480
reven and then exhale and find

46
00:01:58,480 –> 00:02:01,430
relaxation and peace with the posture

47
00:02:01,430 –> 00:02:02,210
you’re going to really increase

48
00:02:02,210 –> 00:02:05,150
flexibility from here I want to take the

49
00:02:05,150 –> 00:02:09,860
straps out exhale coming up bring those

50
00:02:09,860 –> 00:02:13,430
straps up to your arms let’s go ahead

51
00:02:13,430 –> 00:02:14,960
and put our arms in the loop so you want

52
00:02:14,960 –> 00:02:16,400
it to be about shoulder width apart or

53
00:02:16,400 –> 00:02:18,530
slightly less and from here I want to

54
00:02:18,530 –> 00:02:22,670
raise our arms up nice and high and just

55
00:02:22,670 –> 00:02:25,610
gently lean over to one side so from

56
00:02:25,610 –> 00:02:26,720
here you want to make sure your feet are

57
00:02:26,720 –> 00:02:28,340
shoulder width apart I’m going to make

58
00:02:28,340 –> 00:02:29,870
sure your head slightly tilted up

59
00:02:29,870 –> 00:02:31,460
towards the sky you’re just going to

60
00:02:31,460 –> 00:02:35,150
reach with two straight arms over if you

61
00:02:35,150 –> 00:02:37,460
find yourself right here that’s fine as

62
00:02:37,460 –> 00:02:39,980
long as you’re feeling a little bit of

63
00:02:39,980 –> 00:02:42,200
muscle contraction on the side that

64
00:02:42,200 –> 00:02:43,790
you’re leaning towards and muscle

65
00:02:43,790 –> 00:02:45,770
stretching on the opposite side you’re

66
00:02:45,770 –> 00:02:47,390
in the right place don’t hold your

67
00:02:47,390 –> 00:02:48,739
breath you want to make sure you can

68
00:02:48,739 –> 00:02:53,590
breathe in deeply here nice deep breath

69
00:02:53,590 –> 00:02:56,570
is they’re doing excellent building nice

70
00:02:56,570 –> 00:02:59,000
core strength while stretching out the

71
00:02:59,000 –> 00:03:02,510
sides exhale as you come forward and go

72
00:03:02,510 –> 00:03:05,390
move to the other side as well you can

73
00:03:05,390 –> 00:03:07,250
always start off with a few breaths but

74
00:03:07,250 –> 00:03:08,600
make sure you try to repeat yourself

75
00:03:08,600 –> 00:03:11,000
until you can do about five or six deep

76
00:03:11,000 –> 00:03:13,790
breaths in each pose then you can return

77
00:03:13,790 –> 00:03:16,489
to Center let’s go ahead and keep our

78
00:03:16,489 –> 00:03:19,489
arms right here and we’re going to reach

79
00:03:19,489 –> 00:03:22,489
down to the ground nice shoulder width

80
00:03:22,489 –> 00:03:24,620
arms shoulder width legs

81
00:03:24,620 –> 00:03:27,390
go ahead and reach to the ground there

82
00:03:27,390 –> 00:03:34,260
breathing deeply from here I want you to

83
00:03:34,260 –> 00:03:36,780
take the strap bring it to your back put

84
00:03:36,780 –> 00:03:39,629
your hand in that same loop again we’re

85
00:03:39,629 –> 00:03:42,030
going to spread our legs nice and wide

86
00:03:42,030 –> 00:03:43,890
feel free to point your toes out to the

87
00:03:43,890 –> 00:03:46,140
corners if you need to from here we’re

88
00:03:46,140 –> 00:03:48,659
going to bend add the way same with the

89
00:03:48,659 –> 00:03:50,129
forward bend but this time going to

90
00:03:50,129 –> 00:03:53,629
rotate our arms up and over our head

91
00:03:53,629 –> 00:03:55,859
nice full body stretch here we’re

92
00:03:55,859 –> 00:03:57,409
stretching out the shoulder blades

93
00:03:57,409 –> 00:03:59,640
warming up the rotator cuffs in our

94
00:03:59,640 –> 00:04:05,489
hamstrings inner thighs glute stretch as

95
00:04:05,489 –> 00:04:07,500
you’re doing really good exhale come up

96
00:04:07,500 –> 00:04:09,629
try to hold that for five to sixty

97
00:04:09,629 –> 00:04:11,849
breaths bring the strap to the front

98
00:04:11,849 –> 00:04:13,980
again and we’re going to go ahead and

99
00:04:13,980 –> 00:04:16,680
get in plank position here feet are

100
00:04:16,680 –> 00:04:18,720
slightly wider than shoulder width apart

101
00:04:18,720 –> 00:04:21,120
but this strap is going to help keep our

102
00:04:21,120 –> 00:04:23,669
arms nice and together you want to make

103
00:04:23,669 –> 00:04:25,860
sure that your elbows are rotated out

104
00:04:25,860 –> 00:04:27,570
and forward when you’re in this position

105
00:04:27,570 –> 00:04:29,639
so your elbows are not buckling this way

106
00:04:29,639 –> 00:04:32,070
rotate them out forward put a nice bend

107
00:04:32,070 –> 00:04:35,070
there and push back into downward dog if

108
00:04:35,070 –> 00:04:36,840
you feel like you have trouble keeping

109
00:04:36,840 –> 00:04:39,930
your hips and plates you can feel free

110
00:04:39,930 –> 00:04:41,820
to put the strap around your ankles or

111
00:04:41,820 –> 00:04:44,580
around your calves in order to keep your

112
00:04:44,580 –> 00:04:46,949
legs in place for me and I find that

113
00:04:46,949 –> 00:04:48,960
most people have trouble keeping their

114
00:04:48,960 –> 00:04:51,810
arms rotated properly and aligned so

115
00:04:51,810 –> 00:04:53,760
this is why I suggest using an arms but

116
00:04:53,760 –> 00:04:55,860
you can use the strap anywhere that you

117
00:04:55,860 –> 00:04:57,419
feel is necessary for alignment from

118
00:04:57,419 –> 00:04:59,820
here let’s just gently rock forward drop

119
00:04:59,820 –> 00:05:04,229
our hips down into upward dog gently

120
00:05:04,229 –> 00:05:06,650
rest those thighs

121
00:05:06,650 –> 00:05:09,169
so now we’re bending our spine forward

122
00:05:09,169 –> 00:05:12,410
and backward nice flexibility range here

123
00:05:12,410 –> 00:05:16,280
in the core went side to side now we’re

124
00:05:16,280 –> 00:05:17,780
going forward and backwards and getting

125
00:05:17,780 –> 00:05:19,280
our hamstrings as well so I’m going to

126
00:05:19,280 –> 00:05:22,760
get up into plank position back into

127
00:05:22,760 –> 00:05:26,800
downward dog breathing nice and deep and

128
00:05:26,800 –> 00:05:31,910
from here let’s just gently walk up keep

129
00:05:31,910 –> 00:05:34,160
our palms press down onto the ground our

130
00:05:34,160 –> 00:05:35,540
knees are slightly bent this time our

131
00:05:35,540 –> 00:05:37,910
feet are together and then I want you to

132
00:05:37,910 –> 00:05:40,550
focus on standing up pressing your palms

133
00:05:40,550 –> 00:05:42,590
down into the ground and extending those

134
00:05:42,590 –> 00:05:45,770
knees just focus on standing up you

135
00:05:45,770 –> 00:05:47,000
might not get all the way straight

136
00:05:47,000 –> 00:05:49,190
that’s okay you can feel that stretch

137
00:05:49,190 –> 00:05:53,330
down from here inhale bring those arms

138
00:05:53,330 –> 00:05:55,699
up palms to the sky drop that head back

139
00:05:55,699 –> 00:06:00,789
and push those hips forward

140
00:06:05,210 –> 00:06:09,169
exhale coming up and as always try to

141
00:06:09,169 –> 00:06:12,830
repeat each pose with 5 to 60 breaths

142
00:06:12,830 –> 00:06:15,800
each and do this routine at least 3

143
00:06:15,800 –> 00:06:17,780
times around to really maximize the

144
00:06:17,780 –> 00:06:20,449
benefit of the entire routine my name is
