Welcome to this six-week series brought to you exclusively by Whole Life Challenge in partnership with Tune Up Fitness. Each week, coach Jill Miller will teach you new movements (and a few things about your anatomy) so you can increase your mobility (and your connection to your body). These practices are optional and are simply one of the many ways you can accomplish your ten daily minutes of mobility.
Jill Miller Mobility Follow Along: Week 2
Today we’re going to go over the cardinal movements of the spine in a lesson I call “Spine Time.” First, we’ll go over some basic anatomy, and then we’ll dive into your anatomy. We’re going to explore some planes of movement that you may not have used in a while and free up your stuck tissues to help you feel better along the length of your body.
As always, we’ll begin with a check-in, do some work with our body, and then finish with a recheck so we can see the difference we made. Just hit play on the video above and I’ll guide you through it all.
Recommended Equipment and Substitutions:
- Yoga Tune Up Balls or Therapy Ball Plus (or tennis balls)
- A low stool
- Exercise or yoga mat
You can purchase Tune Up Fitness equipment at our online store.
