DAY 3 - #LongerStrongerSplits!! #UpavisthaKonasana #WideLegForwardFold .
🔥Listen👂🏼in to hear the instructions and try prepping on your back, low back grounded, in a Happy Baby variation and then wide legs on your back, with or without straps. 🔥Then try seated with straps if you can't grab your toes. If you don't have straps, wrap a towel around your feet! Get creative! .
🔥Find some movement but then see if you can push into the straps, tightening your quads by thinking of lifting your kneecaps, then relax your legs to stretch. Hold the squeeze for 5 breaths and then relax. 🙌🏼
✖️Check out @ettlivstyle to continue to the next level. After that, @susanbishopyoga and @supermomtraci!
❣This ALL levels challenge will challenge YOU to CHANGE your stretching strategy...and here's how: .
✖️1st - clarify the joint position.
✖️2nd - reciprocal stretching. When the proper muscles contract (agonist), the bones align and the reciprocal muscle (antagonist) stretches and relaxes. .
✖️3rd - longer holds.
✖️4th - REPEAT day 1 before day 2, day 1 & 2 before day 3, etc.
❣Each day we will share 1 asana and teach how to incorporate warm ups, repetitions, facilitated stretch strengthening, and long holds for 3-5 min.
❣We are using techniques developed by Dr Ray Long in his book, Hip Openers and Forward Bends.
❣Take a quick picture 📸 of your current splits IF YOU HAVEN'T YET and SAVE it so on Day 10 you can see 👀 your progress 🎉!
