This routine – focusing on the major joints throughout the body – is a very effective way to get yourself warmed up for tai chi practice, other exercise or just for your day! Great to do at the start of the day to gently get the blood and the energy flowing, or at any other time of day for an instant pick-me-up.
It takes you through mobility routines for the shoulders, neck, wrists, hips, knees and ankles but will stretch and strengthen the whole of the body, correcting posture, increasing the range of motion in the joints and helping you feel more relaxed.
PLEASE NOTE – Do not attempts the lower positions if you have any issues with knees, ankles, back or hips – always err on the side of caution and if necessary, seek the advice of a medical professional before starting a new exercise routine. You will receive many benefits from just doing the upper body exercises (and if you require a seated joint mobility routine – you can follow one HERE).
