EPISODE 214: Corrective Exercise

We often think of “exercise” as the yoga class after work, the morning jog, or a weightlifting session. But there are many more ways to exercise, and one often overlooked is Corrective Exercise; fitness practices designed specifically to correct weakness, tightness and imbalance in the body.

On this week’s Yoga Talk Show, you’ll learn about simple self-care techniques that can make a huge difference in your health.

Listen in to learn:

  • Why Corrective Exercise is a great choice for healing injuries
  • Why stronger rather than gentler rehab routines might just be the best choice
  • Why tight hip flexors can cause lower back pain
  • What “autogenic inhibition” is and how it can help you with corrective exercise self-care
  • How “the couch stretch” can help counteract the effects of chronic sitting
  • How “the doorway stretch” can help open your upper body
  • Why 1 minute of mobility per 30 minutes of sitting can make a huge difference
