It’s no secret that I slipped way back into a sedentary lifestyle over the last year. Now I’m at an age where I start paying the price for inertia with aches and pains and tightness.
In early September I started doing this practice almost every day after waking up. It’s only 11 minutes long. When I started I couldn’t kneel/sit on my heels at the beginning or hold the hip twists at the end for more than a second. Now I can move through this entire practice most days without any modifications. (Some mornings I need a pillow between my butt and heels at the beginning.)
Trust me, I hate that movement makes me feel better but if you’re a sedentary, achy person, try this out every morning for a month and see where you end up compared to where you started.
