Here is a 60-75 minute sequence to help stretch out your legs and hips, night or day! Enjoy!

Need a timer? I highly recommend the CDN TM30! It’s got a vibration setting that’s just the right subtle reminder to ease out of the posture.

1. Seated Hero to Reclined Saddle Pose (3 minute meditation, 3 minutes reclined)

2. Baby Dragon (2 minutes)

5. Reclining Big Toe Pose (4 minutes)

6. Reclined Twist (3 minutes)

[repeat poses 4-6 on other side]

7. Supported Bridge Pose (5 minutes)

8. Savasana – Legs Up the Wall Pose (7 minutes)

Close with a seated meditation and enjoy the space you’ve created all throughout those legs! Ahhhh.

Please leave comments if you need help with modifications or have questions about any of the poses. Each pose is linked to directions on how to get into and out of the pose.

Have a lovely day!
