nighttime stretches - Ouch!

  • Sep 27th, 2019 at 5:25AM

I’m going for the maximum time on each of the nightly stretches but many of them are quite painful during the first minute. The pain subsides after I finally ease into the stretch and then it also takes me 10-15 secs at the end to come out of the stretch.
Love these stretches but there are definitely painful moments!!

It takes some time to make friends with those evening stretches. For me it has everything to do with getting to your deepest expression of the pose gradually and using the breath as a guide. If you are sweating and your breath becomes jagged...this is a sure sign you've gone too far, too fast, Kelly!

      I am with you brother.

      Dis-entangling takes time and the pain is not my friend and reading Ward's reply I need to review how I do this.
