The next Whole Life Challenge starts in:

Here at the Whole Life Challenge, yoga is one of our go-to mobility practices. To share its benefits with you, we’ve partnered with MyYogaWorks, as their approach to health and well-being aligns so well with ours. Together, we’ve created a series of follow-along videos to address a different body part for each week of the Challenge.

The spine is what links our whole body together, so it’s a great thing to focus on during your mobility sessions. In this video, instructor Sarah Ezrin takes you through a series of twists, extensions, flexions, and side bends to create mobility in your spine and release tension. If you tend to hold tension in your neck and/or have lower back pain, this video will be an especially great one for you.

This sequence is a great way to warm up the spine, but it’s also nice neutralizer at the end of a long day. So whatever time of day you’re scheduling your session, these mobility movements will work for you. Just take ten minutes, and you’ll move better and feel better.

The founders of YogaWorks, Maty Ezraty, Chuck Miller, and Alan Finger, were all serious and highly accomplished yoga practitioners who wanted to share the gifts they learned from their own wise teachers. In 1987, when they opened their first studio on Montana Avenue in Santa Monica, they gathered many styles of yoga under one roof, which attracted the best teachers in Southern California.

As yoga gained popularity in the U.S., the demand for well-trained yoga teachers began to grow. With the help and inspiration of senior teachers Chuck Miller and Lisa Walford, Maty created the world-renowned YogaWorks Teacher Training Program in 1990. Based on direct teachings from Indian yoga masters, this program has formed and guided today’s yoga leaders, including Seane Corn, Shiva Rea, Annie Carpenter, Natasha Rizopolus, Vinnie Marino, Kathryn Budig, and many more.
