The holiday season is here! With that comes all the extra parties, standing in long lines at the supermarket, and for many of us, travel. Whether you’re booking long distance plane rides you see family or taking a short road trip to visit a friend, travel season is here! With the added travel comes added stiffness and the body can get out of whack pretty quickly. This yoga video is designed to get you loosened up post-travel.
As an avid traveler myself, the annoyance of body aches post travel days is not something new to me. The neck and shoulders are all out of sorts from my refusal to purchase a comfortable neck pillow. My hips and low back are cursing me for the extended hours of sitting in cramped spaces. Sometimes, I lose feeling in my butt completely.
Can you relate?
Thank the heavens for the accessibility of yoga in times like these. Honestly, you don’t even need a mat for the stretches I share in today’s video. All you need is twenty minutes of time and a willingness to slow down and try some new things.
Sounds good? Your body deserves some extra attention, especially knowing that excessive amounts of sugar and booze are probably on their way to you. (Which reminds me that a good detox yoga class is probably needed soon too.)
I have a challenge for you today. Pay attention to what stretches feel the most delicious on your body and make note of them. A lot of these moves can be returned to over and over again throughout the day.
Shoulders cramping up from wrapping too many gifts? Lower back angry from the twelve hours you spent in the kitchen on Saturday making the most meticulously adorable gingerbread men? Return to your favorite stretches when you feel out of whack again.
Better yet? Return to this video as many times as you’d like. You can also check out some out our printable yoga tools you can bring anywhere.
