Lie on your side. Place a tennis ball or ACUBALL just above your hip bone and relax. Feel the tension release. Breathe. Go to other side.



Lie on your back. Place the ball at different places on your spine.


Breathe and release into the ground. Relax. You also can bend your knees and move the ball along your spine. It feels great.

  • Do you have sore shoulders, wrists that ache, neck pain, or just general stress? Use these simple weekly yoga postures to help you create a better day. Just a few minutes throughout your workday will make a big difference! As you start each stretch remember to take nice deep breaths and be aware of your body.

  • As you go through these postures, remember safety comes first. You might feel uncomfortable, which is natural. Pain, however, is not OK. It is your body telling you to stop.
