This is basic yoga routine workout designed for relaxation, stress relief and pain relief. It specifically includes flexibility stretches and poses to help relax the body and is great before bedtime or when you need help falling asleep.
This yoga and pilates blend is a great stretching routine for after a tough workout. It's also effective to use before bed to help you relax and fall asleep faster. We hold each of the stretches in this routine for 30 seconds. Some of the exercises you see in this routine are more dynamic, and fluid, but the vast majority are static stretches. It's important to realize that you should not do a routine with static stretches before you do the rest of your workout, particularly any kind of tough HIIT routine or strength training. Holding stretches in a static position before you do your regular workout can put you at risk for injury, so make sure that you save these kinds of flexibility and stretching workouts for after your workout is finished.
