Creating Space in the Body

When we sit all day, we carry a lot of stagnant energy in our bodies. One of the best things you can do for your body is to elongate and lengthen the joints and muscles that propel us for movement. By allowing for more space and awareness within our body, we are improving our joint range of motion, elasticity, conductivity, extensibility, and more.


Top 5 reasons to stretch when seated for long periods of time:

  1. Benefits your postural and spinal health- Keeps your body in better alignment and relieves stress on the lower back

  2. Allows for optimal blood flow- Healthy circulation delivers more blood to our brain, improving our mental clarity, brain longevity, and stamina

  3. Reduces joint stiffness and muscular tension - Relaxes muscles and slows the degeneration of joints

  4. Improves nerve impulse transmission - Stretching allows for better communication between our sensory nerves and motor nerves

  5. Reduces chance of injury - By pumping synovial fluid into our body, our muscles and joints are better lubricated and our shock-absorbing cartilage is protected.
