STRETCHING SUNDAY🧘🏽‍♀️

Lately, we’ve been focusing on improving our stability and mobility of the lumbo-pelvic hip complex (hips and low back) but it’s important we pay equal attention to the Thoracic Spine (upper and middle back between the shoulder blades). This is especially true if we experience tightness or pain in our neck, upper back or between the shoulder blades. If in our resting posture we’re prone to rounding or elevating our shoulders, it’s likely our thoracic spine needs some TLC. Excessive time spent in a seated position or looking down at our screens only exacerbates the problem.

Here’s a simple yet effective thoracic mobility exercise that incorporates core and low back stability. Perform 4-6 slow, controlled repetitions on each side. This movement is a great active stretch to prepare your body for a workout, or as a corrective and restorative stretch after a long day. As always, breathe deeply throughout the movement. Meet YOUR body where it is and ALWAYS work within your pain-free, available range.
