If you're looking for a workout to wind you down and destress you, you're in the right place. You can use this routine as a warm up, a cool down and stretch, or you can use it to soothe next-day soreness after more intense workouts. You can start your mornings with this light workout, or you can use it to clear your head and stretch your body before bed (as a bonus, you're likely to sleep much better).
This low key stretching routine follows no real rules or structure. Feel free to move along at your own pace, and if you come across a stretch or exercise that either causes you pain or makes you uncomfortable, simply substitute that exercise for something that feels good to you.
The only thing that you'll need for this stretching workout is an open space (big enough to stretch out), and an exercise mat (if you're working out on a hard surface). Choose a quiet place to do the routine for maximum de-stressing, or turn on some music that relaxes you, or if you're in a time/space/motivation pinch, you can always turn this video on and follow along while binge watching your favorite shows - no one's judging so do what works best for you.
