6 Full-Body Stretching Exercises
No flexibility in your schedule? Rest assured, this stretching routine is quick—and its benefits are many.
When you can barely squeeze a workout into your day, taking time to focus on flexibility may feel like, well, a stretch. But
stretching is an important part of fitness: It can improve your range of motion, increase circulation, and calm your mind—which
may help fend off injuries and illness, as well as bring on a better night’s sleep. To limber up, try the following quick
head-to-toe routine created by Dana Slamp, a senior yoga instructor at Pure Yoga, in New York City. Do the complete series
once daily. Deepen each stretch with every exhalation, and stop if you feel any strain or pain.
