For this final week of Spine Month we are focusing on whole spine movements. The Spinal Twist stretch is up there in the top 10 of stretches. This full-body stretch is perfect after activity or right before bed. The Wall Peels exercise helps bring fluidity, movement, and awareness of movement to your spine.
This week we are focusing on the lumbar spine, or low back. The first stretch helps open up the sides of the low back while the second exercise provides some gentle movement to the low back while activating the core.
This week we are heading up to the cervical spine. Try this first stretch to relieve tension in the neck and shoulders. The 2nd exercise can help you correct that forward head posture you may have from too much phone and computer time.
This month we will be exploring our spines. Week one, we are kicking it off with the center of the spine, the thoracic.
