Working on your craft, like knitting or spinning, can be very meditative as it encourages you to focus on the present and keep a clear mind. Although they are generally considered low-impact, the repetitive movements associated with these activities can cause injuries over time. We have used our yoga expertise to develop a series of simple stretches and mindfulness exercises to prevent these common maladies. Play with simple yoga stretches and breathing techniques to enhance your knitting, crocheting, spinning or sewing. No matter the craft or level you are at, these yoga practices can help you craft for longer.
