Chair Yoga: Inner Leg Stretch

chair yoga
  1. Sit tall at the edge of a chair, (hold on to the back of the chair for support) extend the left leg to the left side so it is straight and the foot remains fully on the floor. Raise the right arm straight toward the ceiling, keeping the bicep near the ear.
  2. Pull up through the right fingertips while keeping the left leg extended.
  3. Breathe in, hold breath for 5 to 10 seconds.
  4. Exhale, lower arm & bring in leg.
  5. Repeat on the other side.
You should feel this stretch in the inner thigh as well as the sides of the upper body. This exercise can also strengthen hip muscles, shoulders and abdominals.
Fitness and all-around good health is very, VERY important to me and along with my regular fitness; I practice Chair yoga and have a certification in it! In my vlog 'Fitness with Julie' I show you how we can workout even with disabilities, it's all about adaptation, determination and PERSISTENCE!!! Please feel free to contact me; [email protected]
