3/16/22-Hip Stretch

Dribble! Dunk! Swish! March Madness is upon us!

Although we can’t play basketball in the workplace, we can still stretch and take care of our bodies. This month’s WOWs will focus on “Mat Madness”, which is to promote stretching your back and hips. If you don’t have a place to lay down a yoga mat, each week will feature a chair alternative.

This week’s WOW is to stretch your hips and back. You can perform this in a chair or laying down on a mat. While seated, place your ankle on your knee and lean forward. While on the mat, place your ankle on your knee and pull your thigh to your chest. Repeat on both right and left and hold for 30 seconds.

Small stretch breaks make a huge difference!
