Welcome to this six-week series brought to you exclusively by Whole Life Challenge in partnership with HERO Movement. Each week, Luke Jones will take you through a brand-new video. These practices are optional and are simply one of the many ways you can accomplish your ten daily minutes of mobility.
HERO Movement Mindful Mobility Week 6: The Whole Body
It’s time to bring it all together. Having worked through various parts of the body over the past five sessions, we’re now going to see how everything is joined up.
In our first standing sequence, we’ll nourish the main pillar points of the body and incorporate a bunch of circular motions for a fairly challenging full-body flow. Then, we take things to the ground, playing with a new squat variation, taking some weight through the hands, and finishing up with an improvisational flow. Who said play was just for kids?
Please note: while most movements in this series are low impact and can be adjusted for more suitable variations, remember to listen to your body and pause if something doesn’t feel right.
