MORE: Yoga for digestion

The only thing that you will need for this sequence is a tie or a belt. It’s designed to support your back. Our sedentary lifestyle means we have to move as much as we can to keep a healthy back. This simple class will help you open hips, hamstrings, adductors and calves to alleviate any tension that may be pulling the spine down. It’s great done anytime during the day but particularly good before bed and you can do it on an ongoing basis or as and when you need it.

Sequence: 

  • Half Happy Baby Pose
  • Supine Pigeon
  • Pelvic Tilts
  • Hamstring, Adductor and Hip openers
  • Cat/Cow
  • Bird Dog
  • Childs Pose with Extended Arms
  • Bent Knee Down Dog
  • Low Lunge
  • Half Splits
  • Relaxation
