Simple Stretch Series

General Guidelines

➔ Start out by holding each active stretch for at least 30 seconds, or 5 – 10 breath cycles (inhale + exhale), working
up to 1-3 minutes. Passive stretches (supine twist + legs up the wall) can be held up to 15 minutes.

➔ Never under any circumstances should you feel pain. A healthy feeling of tension along the muscle is a sign of
the tissues responding to the stress of the stretch, pain is a way for your body to tell you you have pushed past
a safe range of motion.

➔ ALWAYS listen to your body.
