Shoulder Mobility 1

 

Mobilise the shoulders and open the chest with this 10 minute sequence. Suitable for most and potentially great for breast cancer survivors to increase mobility and keep the lymph moving. Not recommended if you have a shoulder injury - please consult with you GP or physio etc..

Footwork

 

 15 minute footwork and ankle strengthening and mobilising class.
One of the most important structural parts of the body. Vital to keep your feet strong and mobilised to help avoid injury and pain throughout the body and increase your balance. Strong feet also help to give you a better running and cycling technique and can keep you walking longer.
You will need bare feet, a wall or chair, tennis ball or small weighted ball, pencil and a piece of kitchen roll!
Enjoy!!

Bedtime Breather & Mobilise

 

A gentle 25 minutes of breath and movement to help calm down the nervous system and gently mobilise before bedtime or when you need to feel a little more at ease.
Wear something warm (pj's and a warm jumper may be perfect!) and you you may need a towel or cushion for your head and knees and possibly a blanket to throw over yourself at the end.
Enjoy and I hope it helps you grab some zzzz's
