Stretches for Each Major Muscle Group
Friday, February 27th, 1:00pm
Stretching is an important part of exercising and is often overlooked. It helps to loosen your body, can help prevent cramped and pulled muscles, and can help to prevent other injuries. Stretching also increases flexibility and improves range of motion. Come to this clinic to learn how to safely and effectively stretch each major muscle of the body. Please be prepared to stretch/actively participate in this clinic.

Perspectives on Being Well
The Art of Movement
by Jared Rogers
Please follow these simple instructions:
- Sit up tall on the front edge of your chair.
- Take a slow, deep inhale through your nose. Expand your stomach out.
- Exhale vibrantly through your mouth. Make a “sigh” sound.
- Roll your shoulders backwards a few times.
- Using your hands on your legs to provide assistance, twist your spine and neck to the right, focusing on rotating from the stomach and shoulders.
- Repeat on the left side.
- Reach both hands in between your legs to the floor. Feel the pull in your low back.
- Inhale deeply, sit up tall, and reach both hands as high in the air as possible.
You feel better than you did two minutes ago, correct? This is the magic of movement.
