Stretching Out the Stress

Hey all my ladiesssssssss (sorry, bros), but has anyone else had a stressful week?  All my fellow yogis out there know that all of your emotional baggage sits directly on. your. hips.  That’s right – Happiness?  On your hips.  Stress?  On your hips.  Random laughter because you’re feeling highly inflexible?  You guessed it… on your hips.

So what’s a girl to do to even out these emotions so that we can tackle the day ready to go?  Stretch it out! Below are the four stretches that I’ve started to incorporate into my daily life.  I’d recommend incorporating these either early in the day or before you go to sleep to rid yourself of overwhelming emotions and get in the right mindset.

I hope that these help you to feel relaxed and rejuvenated for the great life ahead of you!!


What are your favorite stretches to help you feel calm and relaxed?  Do you have any favorite yoga poses that you use to center yourself?

Create a great life!

    Its so funny you posted this now. Im thinking about joining a yoga class at the end of this month. Well, I used to take yoga my freshman year of college but I pretty much forgot all about it. Sometimes I do the one where you’re on a plank and stretch looking up at the ceiling??? Im sure it has a name I just cant remember it. But it feels great!

      Ha – yep, upward dog. Feels great, doesn’t it!! I can’t recommend yoga enough. If you stay consistent, it really does become life changing. Let me know what you decide. 🙂

      So great, right!? I feel right at home once I’ve centered myself and spent some time in the studio. I actually broke these stretches out this morning to get me up on the right side of the bed. It felt so good to take a second this morning to get my mind in the right place. 🙂
