Movement Monday! Shoulder Stretches While Traveling

This tutorial is filmed in one of my most favourite places on the planet, Reynisfjara beach near Vik on the south coast of Iceland. Filmed during our recent yoga retreat in Iceland. (PS- We're heading back there again next September, sign up for the newsletter to stay updated!)

When we travel, it's pretty common to feel aches and pains or tension in our upper back, neck and shoulders from all that sitting on planes and in cars. The good news is that just a couple minutes of some effective stretches can go a long way to keep you feeling great and energized so that you can keep enjoying your adventures. And the even better news is that you can also do these stretches at home and at work. Anytime, anywhere. Even on a yoga retreat where we are doing yoga everyday, we also make sure to fit in short little movement breaks.

One of my favourite sayings is "Less is More" and that applies to these stretches. You don't have to do a full yoga practice to feel great in your body. Simply move a little more often, for a few minutes wherever you are. So simple!


As always, spread the movement love by sharing and commenting below. What's your favourite stretch when traveling? Let us know!
