Yoga + Yarn: Stretching Tips

May 4, 2016

 

 

Knitting may seem like a low impact activity, but the repetitive motions can sometimes cause stiffness in your shoulders and hips. Taking breaks every twenty minutes by stretching or standing can help release tension that is building up.

 

We love taking a break and standing in tree pose. This is a great hip opener and can be done standing with a wall behind you to help with balance. Don't worry if your leg doesn't come all the way up to your inner thigh, you can place your foot on your calf or even have the toes touching the floor. The main thing is to let your hip open and to relax your shoulders.

 

Happy Knitting!
