I have several requests each week at my fitness classes for stretches that help a certain pain or ache. I find yoga stretches really help when it comes to a particular ache, especially if it is muscular.
Here are a few of my favorite stretches for the common complaints I hear about.
Calves: Downward Facing Dog
Hamstrings and Glutes: Any Kind of Forward Fold
Shoulders: Thread the Needle
Entire Leg: Sitting Forward Fold
Inner Thigh: Revolving Triangle Pose
Torso: Crescent Lunge with a Twist. (This also works triceps, simultaneously.)
Hips: Pigeon Pose Lower Back: Cat/Cow Poses
Lower Back: Cobra/Sphinx Poses
Back, Torso and Glutes: Child’s Pose
I hope this helps your aches. Besides, stretching every day prevents aches, too, remember!!
Do you have any stretches that work for you?
