Virtual Fitness: How To Do A Hip and Calf Stretch Combo

A Two Park Stretch For Inner Hips and Calf Muscles
INSTRUCTIONS: Perform a lunge move by stepping forward with right foot and bending the right knee to a 90 degree angle. Allow heel on left foot to lift. Place both hands on your mat on either side of your right foot. Hold this position to stretch inside hips for 20 to 30 seconds. Change the stretch position by slowly straightening your right knee. Lift the toes on the right foot. Drop heel on back foot. Hold for 20 to 30 seconds. Repeat both stretches by stepping forward with the left foot.
MODIFICATION: Use blocks under your hands if you’re unable to reach the mat.
VARIATION: Use one hand on the mat and the other just above the knee, as shown in the video. This variation gives you less support.

EXERCISE DOs and DONTs – As with all exercise programs, when using exercise videos that appear on this site, you need to use common sense. If your muscles are weak, either do the modifications, or don’t attempt this exercise if it’s too difficult for you. When starting an exercise program, be sure to discuss your plans with your healthcare provider

Virtual Yoga: How To Do A Warrior II Vinyasa

Warrior II Vinyasa

Warrior II Pose > Extended Side Angle Pose
A short vinyasa sequence isolates movement. Learn how to improve flexibility, and correct alignment, by practising two basic poses in the flow style.
Warrior II Alignment: position your knee directly over your ankle. The distance between your feet is about the length of one leg. The hips face forward in the starting position.
Modifications: 1) Use one or two Yoga blocks under your supporting hand if reaching the mat is too difficult. 2) Allow the outer edge of your back foot to lift off the mat.
Modifications: 3) Instead of reaching your arm over your head, bring your arm around your back, allowing it to rest there. 4) Look forward, instead of looking up.
Why Use Yoga Blocks? Using 1 or 2 blocks helps maintain correct alignment. Blocks prevent your body from leaning forward in the Warrior II Pose. Correct alignment improves the ability to breath properly during poses.
EXERCISE DOs and DONTs – As with all exercise programs, when using exercise videos that appear on this site, you need to use common sense.
