Fall Back into Fitness Day 5: Total Stretch. For our final day of the Fall Back into Fitness Event, we’ll focus on fitting in a total-body stretch. Stretching is an important part of this plan because it can improve performance, increase flexibility, range of motion and relieve stress — all important benefits that can may help you reach your goals faster, or at the very least, help you feel. The Suggested Fall Back into Fitness Schedule: Day 1: Total-Body Strength Training. Day 2: Steady-State Cardio.

Day 3: Interval Cardio + Core. Day 4: Strength Circuits. Day 5: Total Stretch. Days 6 &. We’ll be using one or two sets of dumbbells [one heavier set for larger muscle groups like your legs, chest and back and a lighter set for your smaller muscles like.

Lower back pain is a fairly common health issue, partly because so many things can cause it.. In some cases, it might be a symptom of an underlying condition, such as kidney stones or. Back off to the point where you don’t feel any pain, then hold the stretch.

Make stretches sport specific. Some evidence suggests that it’s helpful to do stretches involving the muscles used most in your sport or activity. If you play soccer, for instance, stretch your hamstrings as you’re more vulnerable to hamstring strains. Step back with your left leg and place both of your hands on the ground on either side of your right foot, about shoulder-width apart.

Lower your hips until you feel a stretch in the front of your. traighten your arms, lace your fingers, bend sideways at the waist and draw your arms toward the right into a deep stretch. Hold for 15 to 30 seconds. Slowly return to center, then repeat by drawing your arms toward the left, holding an additional 15 to 30 seconds. 5.

Cardiovascular fitness: When you do cardiovascular exercise, you work your muscles a little bit. Initially, you’ll see some development, but those gains plateau pretty quickly [1]. Fall is the perfect time to tackle a 30 Day Workout Plan and Healthy Eating Challenge to feel great, get in shape, and boost your confidence before the holidays. This flexible exercise routine and clean eating meal plan is the ultimate fitness inspiration that you’ve been looking for.

The back isn’t only one of the body’s biggest and strongest body parts, it’s also the most complicated in terms of being a series of interconnected muscle groups. For the purposes of this feature, we’re dividing the back into its four main regions: Upper and outer lats Lower lats; Middle back; Lower back.

  • Last week I strained my back after yard work and a workout back to back. This stretching routine really helped and I am back because after this week of work, my back is extra stiff again. I always stretch after my workouts, but focus mostly on stretching my legs. I am not usually patient enough in stretching either, and as I have gotten older realize I need to give more time to it. Following your routine is much better than making myself focus with no guidance. This routine flies by and makes me not realize I have just spent 25 minute stretching. I’m now doing it with football on my big screen!

  • A wonderful delicious, juicy stretch to end the week. It felt so great that I followed up with this 15 Minute Post Workout stretch which felt even more wonderful and juicy:

  • I started exercising again a couple of days ago. I did a nice beginner’s workout the first day. The second day I did a modified version of what I THOUGHT was a beginner’s workout but I was wrong! (Ow.) Been aching and sore for a couple of days and not sleeping well. I thought, “Well, I can either stay sitting around in pain or I can get some blood flowing to try to heal those sore muscles and lubricate those joints.” So I found this stretch video and while I can’t do the plank/upward/downward dog thing I was able to do most of it and I feel looser and less stiff and sore. Thank you!

  • Day 48 Wonderful Stretch that can be done with or without a chair just what I needed after working out all week. It feels so great!

  • Really enjoyed this tonight. It was definitely needed after such a long and very challenging day at work.
    It has helped me relax and de stress before dinner and ofcourse stretch out and regain some flexibility.

  • I started doing a weekly stretch routine with the Fall Challenge-it has become something I look forward to every week. Thank you for getting me started on the habit!

  • I seriously love your workouts!!! I keep coming back to your channel and always find myself really enjoying my workouts. I have done a wide range of other programs and always get tired of them. My daughter loves it when Peanut is on:). I am having some pretty bad upper back issues and I have started working my way through your Pilates & Yoga Inspired playlist and the Low Impact Playlist. I keep telling my mom that she needs to try your workouts too. Thanks so much!!!

  • I have just completed the five day challenge and I feel great, both physically and mentally. This was just the push I needed to get me started with my exercise routine once again. Thanks Jessica.

  • Thank you for this practice of 30 days for reminding myself and others that yoga is a moving meditation and the physical aspects are just a bonus, I came back to beginning yoga just for this reason and am soo happy I found this particular 30 days and also the channel! Again, namaste ����

  • This was great! I would tell folks I learned the hard way! Listen to her. I hurt my knee by not being flexible When I went through physical therapy I was told I would need to stretch at least 20 minutes 3 times a week rest of my life and briefly the other days. I noticed too when I was in the gym hard core a lot of men would skip the stretching at the end of classes. I tried to coax them to it. Just try it…it really does help your workouts!

  • I bought a fitness DVD of yours years ago. Found it in a bargain bin. Way before Youtube was a thing. From that DVD I have trusted you and your workouts. Love them and your weekly email newsletters. Thank you!!

  • I have been doing really intense workouts this week. This is a great way to begin my day and stretch out those tight areas. Feeling great, thank you Jessica.

  • My husband walked in and heard you say “boyfriend pose” and we both started dying!!!!!! I enjoy how your classes are both challenging and humorous!

  • This is an excellent workout. I did this after Day 3 Interval Workout this morning. I had the time and needed to stretch out my muscles and relax. Really great and super music too.

  • Thanks Jessica! I finished all 5 days which is HUGE for me because I tend to take on too much and not complete anything. I love that your workouts do not make me feel as if I’ve been in a sauna for 30 min. I am becoming reacquainted with my body. Thanks.

  • Great stretch, Jessica! I always struggle with the quad stretch where you reach behind and grab your ankle. When I was in school (a long time ago), we used to reach behind with the opposite hand and hold the ankle, but I don’t see that in any workout I’ve seen in years. I’m assuming that is no longer recommended? I struggle to get a good quad stretch in because of my limited flexibility. I’ve tried placing my foot on the arm of the couch, but it just doesn’t give me a good stretch. Any suggestions for us tighter folks? Thank you! (P.S. I just love seeing Peanut in there, too. She always brings a smile to my face!)

  • Thank you Jess! this was a great stretching routine!! and just what I needed today since I was a bit achy…… it felt wonderful!!! will be repeating all these Fall Challenge workouts again!! loved them!

  • Oh my Jessica.  I was having a bad week with my back and you just made life even better than it already is with this amazing stretch.  My Sciatic is tolerable now.  Thank you for being such an amazing instructor. #MFPFallChallenge, #JessicaSmithTV

  • I was craving a stretch after this week’s workouts. The fronts of my thighs were screaming last night and this morning, and my chest/shoulders/neck were incredibly sore with all the planks and the core intervals. This was nice, relaxing, and opened up my body. I feel a lot calmer now, too! Thanks, Jessica, My Fitness Pal, and Peanut for a week’s worth of excellent new routines!

  • First of all Thankyou so much for putting up a whole week challenge and for maintaining that energy in every workout. I loved the whole series. ♥️. It’s just not about the lockdown, i think am gonna follow your regime after the lockdown as well. ♥️. Also would really love if you could put up more week challenges like this one, It really ups the game, With more booty & core ����

  • #MFPFallChallenge I definitely needed to stretch after this week’s workouts, I was feeling very stiff at the beginning but better now!

  • Never practiced with Tim, took a chance, that was bloody excellent! Struggling with flexibility even though I’ve been practicing a long time. I think its my mind and also that the classes I am doing on youtube may be too fast paced. But I’m scared of any mention of ‘slow’. This class was perfect for hold length AND pace. Strength and flexibility. My body started trusting and I am so grateful to have found that spot again. Tim is very comforting and down to earth which put my energy at ease so I was able to stretch further and more comfortably and get into a meditative flow. I really enjoyed this and I recommend any one who wants to further their practice to press play and let go. Thanks so much Tim

  • Thanks Tim! The poses felt a few seconds longer than the ones in the rest of the videos of this challenge. I really enjoyed this video and getting used to longer videos:-)

  • When my arms gave out from all the snake variations, I made the terrible mistake of wishing we would do more leg intensive moves….I have regrets.

  • I love this 7 day challenge. Most stretching poses on day 7 are yoga. I want to do this 7 day challenge 2 more times before I go on to your 12 weeks workout. Thank you soooo much! This is AWESOME!!! ��������������������������

  • This workout is the best what could happened to me today after getting a touch of the flue since a couple of days. Perfect intensity and such a restoration! Thank you from Germany

  • Oh Sean, just completed day 5, never did I imagine when I watched this through first that my glutes would be screaming by the time I’d finished!! Yet another great session, thank you my friend.

  • The Elephant Mudra was just what I needed! I hope I never forget to include this in my stretching routine when my back needs a little extra.

  • I was so happy we did so many repetitions of those sitting spider stretches/hurdles my hopeless hamstrings….finally started to soften. Also thank you for the poem surprise at the end.

  • Dude, I don’t tag, comment or share often but you have the perfect teaching technique. I’m a pilates newbie (six months) but your direction makes it so much easier. Keep it coming guy!

  • I really enjoy your videos. They’re always a kick in the butt when I think I’m going to take it easy that day. I’ve done Mon-Fri of the 7-day challenge between CrossFit workouts, sometimes in addition to. They’re always a challenge and usually in ways I don’t realize I need to be challenged. Thank you. #7daypilateschallenge #seanviguefitness

  • Teacher….. this was treacherous….. the last part i cheated…. ummm… sorry for that…. but i am lucky you weren’t present here with me in your physical body…. or i would have gotten grilled i know….. Thanks once again for the magnificent workout teacher….. will join you again tomorrow…. (btw… i didn’t workout yesterday… sorry (y) )…. Namaste Da Man:-) (y) <3

  • I expected to have a relaxing restorative stretching practice w this video seeing as I did lower body yesterday but I ended up doing a workout.  kinda tough.  I think I was looking for more of a yoga workout.  oops my bad.:)

  • lol my mobility blows……just got done battling apt(anterior pelvic tilt) any routine suggestions to prevent that from happening again.lol

  • Thank you for not completely editing this video…although I was trying not to lose it there for a sec ����. I always enjoy and learn from your videos.

  • Great one Sean! I love the rowing stuff. The leg work was fun and unexpected. I would like to see more of that because it was difficult.

  • These complex moves require lots of concentration, I guess that’s the point to be in the moment. The side leg series brought me down…

  • It’s hilarious how you keep saying you’re going to post the link to the 7-day yoga videos and don’t! I’ve throughly enjoyed these so far. Keep ’em coming Coach Sean! You’re the best. And I do a lot of different workouts.

  • Hey Sean. Thanks so much for these videos! Absolutely love them. Been seeing serious change in my mobility and strength. One thing though, could you possibly upload them a bit earlier? I’ve been rip-roaring ready to go at 6am EST a few times this week, but sometimes they’re not up until closer to 8am. I would really appreciate it! Thanks. You the man.

  • Hey everyone!! I normally don’t ask for anything, but I’m asking for one simple but HUGE favor for myself and my fiancé, Dustin. YouTube now shows that 58% of our daily viewers are NOT SUBSCRIBED to our channel (to put that into a better perspective, that’s 370,000 other people that are not subscribed which would put the channel around 638,000 subscribers) and I know that a lot of you that have used my channel every single day for the past several months to year and a half aren’t subscribed (I see it when you post your completion stories! lol). It would really help us reach more people if you could do something as simple as taking 2 extra seconds to hit subscribe (swiping up will take you right there!) or sign into your YouTube account and simply subscribe for us. YouTube really puts a lot of value in that subscriber number to gauge how well the audience likes our channel to “recommend” it to other viewers using YouTube. YouTube is one of the only social platforms where you don’t actually have to be subscribed, following, or friends with someone for their most recent uploaded content to be recommended to you regardless of if you have an account or not and with us posting every single day for you all we kind of hurt ourselves with no one needing to subscribe since we’re always at the front of your home page. If you don’t care, please take a second and swipe up to make sure you’re subscribed and also, please do us a HUGE favor and share this post and ask others that use the channel to subscribe so that the awareness of our completely 100% free fitness channel (that won’t go away even after everything is settled with the pandemic) can get to more of those people who need it. Thank you so much!!

  • I’m always amazed after I do any of your stretch routines at how good I feel, you really get into the areas! My body says Thank You �� xxb����

  • Did this stretch after my shift at the hospital! Looking forward to another good day tomorrow and a stretch to finish it out! Thank you, Sydney!

  • Thank you! I just started with you yesterday and I subscribed so you can make your numbers. You are better than the gym! I did the arms, legs and cardio (30 min) yesterday and needed to stretch today. I do run and walk too but needed someone like you for my muscles!!! Hugs!

  • Yay, we reached day 5. We can really see our flexibility improving. Thanks so much for this amazing program. Greetings from Germany. (Oh, and morning cartoon will probably be Dora, the explorer:) Whatever keeps the kids happy and me in bed for 5 more minutes.)

  • THANK YOU SO MUCH, Sydney for all the beautiful workout you share with us. I really appreciate the time you take to record all these useful workouts. I recently came across your Youtube channel and I’m so happy I found you! i need you and your positive words EVERY DAY.

  • Im a nurse and commute 2 hours to my job weekly, just got home this morning from 3 night shifts and this stretch was amazing, thank you❤️❤️I wasn’t able to do the yoga yesterday, I can’t wait to do it tomorrow!!!

  • Loved this stretch!! It was amazing! I have been having trouble with my wrists so this was great to not put any pressure on them!!

  • Can’t wait to do this, Sydney I’m so glad I get to be able to do what I can in my tiny little apartment with your workouts! I love the stretch videos too�� It’s just absolutely amazing! ������

  • This was a nice change to be standing and stretching! I think can do this at work during my lunch break!! Thanks Sydney and Dustin for being an essential service to all who need to feel good during this time!! Happy Sunday all!

  • Normally I skip the stretches as I like to still do a full workout on Sundays…. but I did this after my big workout today and it made me feel so calm and… like I was taking good care of myself. Thank-you xo

  • India is switching of the electric lights and lighting lamps today at 9.00pm for 9 minutes praying for the the entire world to heal and get back normal

  • Day 5 completed. ����I also want to note I started working out on Monday doing your video and I’m also doing Keto but I have already lost 4 lbs. Thank you Sydney❤️❤️

  • Just what I needed today Sydney! My lower back has been quite stiff these past few days and this stretch made me feel so better. You and Dustin have really big hearts that you think first of other people benefitting from what you’re doing rather than you benefitting from it. Thanks to both of you! ❤❤❤

  • Thank you SOOO much!! I actually was able to do this with no problem and I enjoyed it. Thanks for the standing option. Love you and thanks sooooo much for everything! You are too good to us! I appreciate all that Dustin and you do

  • I’m an RN first assist in cardiac surgery and I’m often standing for hours in awkward positions. This will be used often for days like that! 100% sharing with my health care friends and family too ❤

  • Lovely! Thanks Sydney. I feel slightly emotional after this….how lovely that mindful stretching can not only release tense muscles but stuck emotions too ��

  • Thanks Sydney, def needed this since I’ve been working out for 9 straight days with you. I’ve never been this consistent with fitness before, but you just make working out so much fun. Can’t wait for tomorrow’s workout!

  • The boyfriend pose. ���� why are you smiling, Tim? ������ thanks for a really challenging class. Just in these last few days I feel stronger, more focused on lengthening while keeping the core strong. One day I would love to do the teacher training, when finances are a tad better. I love the work you do and the teaching you give the CMC. Namaste.

  • I really enjoy these longer classes so need the strengthening after missing months of classes. Tim is the best teacher I’ve come across in years. He’s so aware of breath and alignment and doesn’t push can cause injuries in students. Thank you, Tim.

  • Happy boyfriend pose ahahahah wasn’t expecting to hear that at that moment. Great class Tim! I was sweating my ass off. Keep up the good work <3

  • This is the perfect ad on after the 30day challenge. Even though I’m already experienced, I can feel a massive improvement in the basics. My hips and shoulders have never been that happy. Thanks Tim!

  • This 7 day series is great. all deeper and more challenging. I really struggle standing and getting my leg out straight/spine stacked, appreciate any tips on opening that area enough to get that pose correct!

  • Hi Tim. My name is Aurore. I live in HK. I have been practising yoga not for long (1-2 years). In wanted to give you some feedback. I was not convinced about taking Yoga classes on YouTube but your class is thumbs up. The setting (simple, clear, relaxing), your voice (clear, slow, relaxing, engaging), the sound (room acoustic is good and this is a key element which should not be underestimated), the content (diverse but steady, challenging but ensuring you focus on the down and feeling rather than showing off fancy pauses, also never thought a teacher on YouTube could correct my pauses better than a live teacher:)). I actually recommended your class to 20 people I think. I started with the 30 days challenge, which helped me a lot in correcting minor position issues, but still very important to correct those. I stopped at day 15 as not enough challenging for me (I do 10 hours of sport a week:)). I have been doing the 7 days quarantine for 2 months now. I love it. As long you keep looking for improving/perfecting your pauses this is still a challenging programme (all is in how committed you are to your practice and making the pauses better each time). So again thank you for the great quality. Any recommendations or suggestions of your top 5 challenging classes

  • Hi Tim thanks so much for these classes I found you during isolation and have loved following you. You have a lovely vibe. Sending you love and good vibes… namaste ��

  • hi
    thankyou for your best videos, i enjoy it, also i do it every morning but sean my streach is so low and when i do excersice whit you, feeling pain in my link and muscles.
    i do pilates for first time. also i have fwd head and i want solve this problem via pilates, please guide me.
    thanyou for your best videos

  • Thanks Tim. I did have a question about a modification for Crow pose. After injuring myself during that pose, I refuse to go into it and would love some ideas or suggestions for modifying.

  • Great class. I am feeling stronger in my arms. I appreciate the reminders to breathe. And for the first time I felt solid in forearm plank.

  • Amazing class I liked the challenge and I think your guidance on alignment is fantastic. Thank you for sharing your teaching, Tim!

  • Eternal flow loop:D your amazing dog has revealed your secret you were cheating at the beginning:D however, thank you for your amazing lessons. I am doing your quarantine challenge for the third time. It is amazing and I love it: )

  • soothing into the practise with sun salutations misled me into thinking this class would be easy definitely mistaken!! great practise to work on especially loved crow to headstand and back to crow, my arms are burning hahah:)) thank you Tim

  • Great class-thank you so much! I enjoyed that you incorporated the inversion and wheels! Maybe more regular hip-openers (e.g. pigeon) could be added? Thank you so much!

  • Completed this full body stretch and recovery. It did my body well, as I have been doing 2 workouts a day, one in the morning and a melody of workout in the evening. I skipped this mornings and replaced it with your recovery and stretch as my body needed a nice mellow stretch and time to recover from all the workouts this week. I feel amazing. Now on to the rest of my day, the woodworking phase of the day. Thank you!

  • namaste from India!! must”ve missed this class… loved it. the beginning was beautiful. have been missing your A and B suryanamaskars.. then the intense middle was so fantastic and then in the end NO abs…YAY!!!! loved every minute of this! best practice ever. my dream is to be in one of your studio classes…one day.

  • I just love this class!!! Namaste Tim!!! Btw I was super concentrated into the energy flow breathing while doing shavasana and suddenly Happy boyfriend pose pop into my head!!! I just LOL by myself while shavasana. It Was awesome so liberating. Thank you!

  • Today it is was more difficult for me to focus, I wanted just to turn off the video and lay in bed. But I finished the workout. My body feels great.

  • A little late to the 7day challenge but It is making my week Just completed day 5 and already feeling so rejuvenated. Can’t wait til day 6. I am not new to yoga but new to Tim. I am a new fan Can’t thank you enough.

  • Tim, this is my third time through the quarantine challenge it’s a definite favourite! After following you for 4-5 years, I still struggle with the various warrior three poses (twists are completely impossible) and would love to see a series dedicated to more instruction and preparation for those. Not yet part of the CM community (simply haven’t found a need, as your youtube channel provides so much beautiful content!), but if you decided to put it there, I’d join for that!:)

  • I am sad to say that today got boring with the repetitive sun salutations even though that is probably more traditional yoga. I was missing your mindfulness cues. I tried to remember during all of the Warrior 1s to come up strong from my core and spine and not take the path of least resistance. I did really appreciate though the visual of being able to see down the top of the head through the spine to the sacrum. I will try to use that cue in the future.

  • Hi Tim! Today’s vinyasa knocked me out during warrior 3 poses. Had to stick to one variation, will continue practice and hopefully develop those muscles. This class got the best of me. Happy weekend to you!

  • Dear Tim, I don’t know if it was my mood or you, probably a bit of both, but this was my all time favorite of all your lessons! The easy pacing just drew me into doing all the poses (okay, except getting my legs straight up from crow and back haha), and still feel relaxed. You have brought me so much more suppleness (hmm…is that even a word in English?) and strength. Incredible. And so needed in these times of chaos and insecurity (with 90% of my income evaporated). Thank you so much and love from beautiful Haarlem Netherlands.

  • Great practice. I generally feel confident in leg balances, but i’ve done this class twice and have not been able to stay steady. I can’t tell if it’s my focus or the flow of the class. Nonetheless, very challenging!

  • I didn’t have, properly, a couple of arrows in my bow, but I passed through with lightness. Thank you for the practice. See you. ��

  • Tim it was PERFECT. so deep, quiet and powerful. i’ve learned what patience is. and thank you for making me laugh so load:) you are the best

  • Great class Tim, thank you! I’m 52 and feel great after completing your class. Should I be combining yoga with some type of aerobic exercise? I’m practically doing NO aerobics. Take care!

  • Happy boyfriend ��. I am so thankful I stumbled across your channel. I am a long time lover of yoga but a short time consistent practitioner. Still a beginner in almost everything, though I am starting to find strength to match my flexibility. This quarantine challenge has been incredible, and I appreciate the form check ins, breath check in, and the reminders for humility and non-violence.

  • Just noticed that you copy-pasted the same sequence, Ollie gives it away. It’s totally fine, but in a way it felt like you were cheating. I got distracted by the jumpy video.

  • Great class! I’ve enjoyed this series so much. I had one friend giving it a try today for the first time and she loved it too. Thanks. I’ve never done yoga every day before like I’m doing now (thanks to not having a job) so I like that the classes vary between tough and not so tough. Today was more heat generating for sure but I thought one of the earlier ones was more strength-y, and one was definitely more on the soft side. The variance-ness of the classes has been great for me. Tomorrow is day 7 for me and then I’ll tackle another one of your challenges and/or check out the conscious movement thing you’ve been talking about. PS Love your dog

  • My favorite quarantine Challenge class yet! Thank you for doing this Tim and helping us get through this crisis with a sense of balance and belonging!

  • I’m new to this channel, but I’m loving your videos! I’m starting withe the Quarantine Challenge, and this was my favorite day thus far:)

  • That was a solid session. Vibin high. Is there anything I can do to build strength in my ankles. 2 snowboarding accidents have corrupted my left and right ankles so any standing balances I have a most difficult time with. Any guidance would be most appreciated. Thank you for your time.

  • Merci beaucoup pour tes enseignements Tim, la diversité de tes cours et ton adaptation à chaque niveau!!
    Un réel plaisir de pratiquer avec toi!!!

  • Thank you for posting this challenge! Loving the higher level and strength poses! So many channels only cater to beginning yogis. I’m joining this challenge late, and not exactly practicing everyday, but really enjoying the more strenuous practice.

  • During normal life, your classes are great. In Corona time, they are essential. Thanks for the connection and the peace. My only feedback would be to emphasize more breathing during the practice. I often forget and find myself straining. Thank you.

  • Hi Heather I m following you from lebanon and I want to ask you is it enough to make these exercises every week(7 days home workout) or I must make more ��

  • Wow Tim!! This was amazing! It reminds me of the OG classes at the beach, years ago! Remember? I enjoyed those classes so much! This strength in flow is bar far the best!

    I can’t wait for more videos. Second week in!

    Also, lmao at Happy Boyfriend pose!! It’s kind of hard not to think the dirtiest shit in some of these Asanas ������

  • Everything about this practice made it my favorite of the Quarantine videos. It actually felt easier than Day 4 for me, while still challenging me. And the way you always just randomly drip in the under-the-breath humor kills me-such a nice relief in the middle of a challenging pose. And of course, Happy Boyfriend… ��

  • Hi Tim. Thank you for a good class. You are my favourite utube yoga teacher no doubt. One comment though. When you said this is one of the hardest classes take it at your pace I was expecting something way more sweating than this. The hardest class I have followed from you so far was “vinyasa flow for strength and balance from yoga dose” 45 min class. I have practiced that video many times and every time I practice my core is on fire. So today’s class is still very good and challenging enough but not the hardest in my opinion. Thank you again for the quarantine challenge.

  • I like how he just casually throws out these impossible moves without any acknowledgement they are difficult. Frustrating teacher, too fast, too difficult and describes it as easy

  • good session, but talk a little bit more on the breathing, it’s supposed to be guided? have a look at yoga with Adriene for some inspiration, and please bow at the end when you do namaste.

  • 49 year sold with a VERY stiff/tight back and hamstrings and already after 5 days I can see and feel the difference. Managed to get my knee/foot straight through to my hands, 2 or 3 days ago I couldn’t get anywhere near!!! Very good and enjoyable series so far. Thank you:)

  • Today I felt about my energy flowing inside of my body. I already got a bit sweat, but it is a nice body strength movement. Thanks for your video.

  • I just love the way you explain how each move is suppose to feel in a way i can understand…it is the single most important thing that has helped me…once I get a pose correct I know… I’m not sure how I do but it goes along with the way you explain it and the pose stretches my body in a specific way that just feels ” more than a stretch” more like I’m twisting my body and it feels right, like I could keep twisting even further but nothing hurts and its strange like you want to keep holding it…like you’ve been trying to learn a new trick on your skateboard and once you’ve got it,it becomes natural feeling and you can just keep doing it…. Sorry hope I’m making sense…lol..hard to explain..thank you so much for teaching me the basics…even though I’m very flexible and some are easy, I didn’t understand until now, there is a specific way to stretch or hold a pose….feels really awesome…can’t wait to get to the end of the challenge and just get better and go on to new challenges! Thank you you for explaining and breaking down the moments in a better than any others have done, in my opinion! It would be hard to break down each movement step by step…mastered it! ������

  • I damaged my right big toe years ago which has resulted in arthritis in the joint nearest the foot, making the poses that start at 4:40min in this video impossible. Any suggestions on a method of avoiding it. The only solution the medical profession are offering is to screw the joint together which I don’t want to do as I cope OK on a dialy basis it just the odd pose that absolutly crank up the pain

  • Spent 2 years believing I simply couldn’t do some poses because I wasn’t flexible enough. Turns out I was doing them wrong in the subtlest of ways. Only three days in and your videos have already helped me correct down dog, triangle and warrior one. No pain, just feeling my body opening up to the poses. Thanks!

  • Hello, just wondering if you do any other type of workout to stay in shape… thank you for the videos, tbh I do it every 2 to 3 days but I’m trying to be constant…

  • Love your videos Jessica! Just had one curiosity, is there a reason why in your cat cows you exhale on the arching the back and inhale on rounding it? I’m accustomed in yoga to do the opposite, and reason it that in the arch we are allowing for extra space to the fill the lungs, and in the round we are giving the diaphragm help pushing all of the air out of our lungs.

  • Hi Tim!
    You are making a diference here in Brasil! I have been in yoga classes for 10 years and I recently switched to YouTube vídeos. I do fell that you are one of the best teachers I have had. Thanks for sharing.

  • You know. I’m getting married tomorrow and these videos have saved my life and everyone else’s life. My attitude has been so even and calm.

  • I loved this doing it again tommorow and day six. Ive been very nauseous, energy depleted and through emotional stress and it washed away. I can handle my slightly upset stomach it’s subsided a bit as well

  • Thank you Tim�� You are the first Yogi I have connected to… ever. I’m 48. I love how you make movements clear and accessible the language importance of energy flow and getting stronger daily as both a spiritual practice and physically….body mind connection. Thank you��

  • seriously man… thank you. Its like your in my head. lol you are so great at this. i cant thank you enough or mean it from a deeper space. Namaste

  • This course has me doing things I would not have attempted from a book or just watching an expert doing on DVD…. I’d really like to be able to flow between the postures we did today so something really worth striving for… Thanks…! Richard

  • Oeh, today was brutal. Doing right after fencing practise was not the smartest idea ever. Imagine 1,5 hours of fiercefully jumping in warrior 2, reverse and repeat. My leg muscles will be so sore tomorrow


  • I love coming home from work to do these workouts. They really help me to settle down after work and it works well with a run afterwards. Thank you for these!

  • Thank you so much, I quit smoking 1 month ago and your videos are the best for keeping me on track to looking after myself:) Im so glad you do these videos, im truly feeling blessed xx

  • When going through the half moon poses, I felt some lower back muscles engaging when trying to keep my body horizontal. These muscles began to feel a small amount of pain when we went into the seated twists later. Is this normal?

  • Merci beaucoup Tim, your sessions totally changed the way I stand and move during the day. It even changed the way I bike and helps to keep concentrated. Merciiiii

  • one of the best experience till date, mix of strengthening and lengthening flow make me feels so effortless and calming. loving each day of practicing. Thank you!!!

  • that felt great especially after a surf a few hours ago. Please dont wear white on a glary day really hard to follow you doing the poses

  • Hi, just wanted to say thank you for offering these amazing workouts, I have just completed your 7 day challenge and my physical and mental health have both improved drastically. Looking forward to future workouts with you.

  • Love this full stretch… so safe and effective. My favorite exercises are the 1 mile motivational walks; i go back to them frequently. Love Peanut also:-) Blessings:-)

  • I am officially smoking H.O.T. since starting your workouts in late April. I am 54 yrs. old and haven’t looked this good since… I was another person in another lifetime. I can now proudly keep up with you on the low impact Hiit workouts most of the muscle building stuff. I feel amazing and I love you. Thank you so, so much.

  • Hooray!!! Finally, I completed this challenge 3 times in 3 weeks. Will start the 12 week challenge starting tomorrow! AWESOME!!!
    ������ ����������������������������

  • YAY!!! Completed week 2 of this 7 day challenge. Will repeat this challenge again starting tomorrow! It’s gonna be my 3rd time doing this workout in 3 weeks. Love it!!!

  • Loving this yoga but is there an easier way to split your legs? I can’t get more than a V shape without actually yelling and I can’t get my back straight up in this position let alone lean forward.:(

  • But its still.not matching lol.. nah its cool funny thing is im wearing the same colors minus the stipes and same color mat Scary…

  • Thank you so much, good stretching and Recovery, am suffering from my neck and shoulder for so many years, I hope this one will help, God Bless u

  • 7 days DONE! Thanks soo much Heather for sharing your knowledge and for your generosity! My husband and I enjoyed your work-out and we look forward to doing the 12-week soon! All the best to you!

  • Thank you so much for the classes Tim. Daily yoga with you is keeping me sane during this crazy time. Stay safe. Sending positive vibes from lockdown London! Namaste: )

  • I just completed week 7 of your 12 weeks program. I love it. Lost inches in my waist and gain mobility, stability and stamina. Cheers

  • So glad to find your workout routines! I’ve tried others but yours is simple and effective. Your voice is soothing and inspiring at the same time. And when you’re not talking, the music is inviting to hear. I’ve been watching and completing your sweat seshes for the past 3 weeks and always end with this Full Body Stretch+ Recovery as I see this routine a rewarding dessert! Funny how you snuck in the push ups in this recovery routine. I got a chuckle out of it.:) Keep it up Heather!

  • Can’t thank you enough. I’ve said it before, but you’ve honestly transformed my mind & body. Thank you for that!!!! Point Edward, Ont ���� #svfforlife.

  • Thank you sooo much for your all efforts in these tough days, it helped a lot.�� And was a great journey challenge for me with you, and I feel so great that I could done this 7 days✅! Looking forward to see your new videos, and already planned of starting that 12 days workout videos! ⚡

  • I’m so happy I have discovered you! I did not even know workout videos could be this perfect! I finished the whole challenge and wow that feels GOOD! Thank you so much, you’re an absolute legend!

  • You are a life changer. I did the 12 week and just finished your 7 day so epic and amazing. Would you ever consider organizing your existing workouts and stretch videos into a monthly playlist to make sure we get a hard work out every week but not over due it in case of injury! You are the best

  • I definitely need streching those exhausted muscles after i finished the program yesterday and cant wait to do 7 days challenge. Heather u r my idol in fitness world ����

I generally don’t comment on any video of YouTube but girl u made me to do so..Every day I sweat like hell and that makes it more interesting.. Lots of love from India.. I’ll be waiting for next challenge..

  • Please please do more workouts with this background. There’s something about the color of that wall that makes the workout so pleasant. Thanks Heather

  • Ahhhhh! So nice! After all the planks and push-ups this week, my shoulders and chest were pretty sore, so this was just right. Thanks again, Jessica!

  • Heather greatings from Ecuador ����. I absolutely loved your challenge. I wish you can upload more like this. It was great to follow like a sequence and knew that I already had what to do the next. day.

  • That was an amazing stretch. I didn’t realize how tight my calves are. Friday nights have gotten a little lame around here….we usually put our toddler to bed and then sit down with a few drinks to watch a movie and see if we can stay awake past 10.

  • That was amazing, going to repeat this one often. Really needed the calf stretch, its insane how tight my calf’s are! My Fridays are usually spent with my Son then some gaming and often some Mystery Science Theater!

  • Definitely needed this after today’s 30 mins legs, arms and cardio workout. My quads and hamstrings are really sore. Thank you so much!!��

  • Greetings from down the hill, (Golden). Just did this after a run and it was a fantastic post-workout full body stretch. Another corker! Thanks, Sean.

  • Hello Sean, decided to start practicing yoga. Finished beginner yoga challenge and doing this one. Some seems hard for me to pull. Im not quite flexible yet. Wanted to thank you! Your videos are motivating and interesting! ��

  • I’ve done a lot of your routines, and this is one of my favorites. Very comprehensive, all the stretches seem to complement each other without any one stretch being too difficult. Except the straddle stretch! I don’t know if I’ll ever get that one. But I modified it by bending my knees quite a bit, and I added the one where you roll back onto your shoulders with your legs up in the air (forget the name of that one). Felt good. Thanks!

  • Have made it so far from the beginner to this, very excited, pumped and tired at the same time lol. The next challenge to follow should be the 30-day power yoga challenge or 30-day pilates challenge?

  • Hey Sean It’s rainy season out here in India,
    And while stretching outside it suddenly starts to rain
    the only place where I can do the routines is on my bed.(becuz that is the only free place in my house, All the other areas are covered with couches, sofas and dining table)

    So Can I do Yoga(Including other routines like power yoga routines, Yin yoga routines etc) on my Bed?
    Please really need your help on this one

  • I have to admit I DID NOT like some of the stretches while doing them, but I feel soooooo much better afterwards! definitely gotta work on those:)

  • loved that. could have done 20 minutes more. The problem I’m having, that I’m sure a lot of guys in their 40’s have, is hinging at the hips with some belly fat. It’s really difficult! Gotta burn that puppy off to be able to get the benefits.

  • Woohoo! I find that I’m holding my breath for a brief moment before exhale. I’m working on continuous breathing while focusing on each position.

  • Just the best stretch routine I have come across! Must have done it at least a dozen times and will continue to do it. Thank you!:)

  • Thank you so much,really this challenge let to change my plan i can trust my body even if I am start tow months ago > really than u so much u made a lot of change in my health,think,body,mood,target and goals in my heath life >and looking forward to have more advice and video to help to more in my goals. i finished all the challenge and i am felling i am stronger and smother like butterfly. and u really reach the other said from the world ur trainer from Qatar send all the best for u and i am looking forward for more.

  • Made it throught the whole thing! I needed it after doing the Scale the Strat race yesterday, where we walked up the Stratosphere tower in Las Vegas.

  • I always have to come back for this routine. I feel so loose now after doing a tough kettlebell workout yesterday my whole body was so tight.

  • Love these stretches! I don’t realize how tense everything is until I stretch. My side kick Sherlock the Scottie likes to do the “lazy dog” on my mat;-)

  • teenage mutant ninja turtles. saved by the bell was the death rattle to indicate our youthful mornings were now going to the adults lol

  • Completed the seven day workout challenge. Absolutely in love with the workouts. Very good compilation of warm ups, exercises and cool down. Really making my workout from home effective. Thanks a lot ma’am ❣️

  • Yoga with our dog is more like a big time wrestling match. Hilariously distracting.
    Saturday morning was always Bug Bunny, Superfriends, and Hannah Barabera, especially Scooby Doo.

  • Finally got through the Warrior Core yesterday, and tacked this onto the end of a T25 workout (yeah, I know, a rival). On travel right now, these are perfect for a hotel room workout! Really enjoy your channel, I keep telling people about it.

  • I enjoy longer stretching videos when I can sneak them in (usually on weekends), and this was amazing! Just finished up a rest/recovery week from strenuous workouts, and I’m ready to get up and crush my routine tomorrow! Thanks, Sean.:)

  • Hi Sean, back for Day 6, a fabulous time of stretching. Can’t manage the power yoga but relish the stretches. Thank you Sean, Lizx

  • love the videos so helpful. and if you can’t do yoga because your too tight well then do yoga haha. how about a hip opener challenge.

  • I discovered this gem a few days ago and I have already done it twice, it felt so good to stretch everything out. I found out that I was more flexible in some areas than I thought I was and there are others that are pretty tight and I was hoping you would be done sooner than you were, but I did do them, so I must just need to work on those areas.

  • I’d love to see a 30 day challenge. I know you are going through a rough time right now but I think it would be very well received. Thanks Sean keep up the good work I love the videos!

  • At 27:40 it looks like you’re doing a terrifying backwards bend with your hat the other way. Really freaked me out, Sean.
    BUT solid stretch, cheers!

  • Almost didn’t make it through this video. Early on you encouraged us to see what the end is going to be. I did. Saturday morning cartoons: when I was really little, Captain Caveman. Most of the School House Rock. Drac Pac. Super Friends. Super Stretch and Micro Woman. Fat Albert. It’s like after 1988, someone decided kids didn’t want to watch cartoons on the prime channels anymore. grrr…

  • Good morning Sean! I just did this stretch at 6:15am! This is one of my favorite routines! When doing the cow’s face, I can reach my fingers together in the back only from when the right arm is reaching from the up and left from down. I’m not as flexible doing it the other way. Feeling really good now! Thank you so much again Sean! Have a Wonderful Day!

  • My husband and I do one of your stretch routines every night! We love your videos so much, we always feel a million times better afterwards!

  • Good morning, Sean! I just did this yoga routine at 6:30am. I have not done yoga in over a week… Oh I LOVE this routine SO MUCH! I’m still working on my leg flexibility but my whole body feels so good now! Thank you SO MUCH again! Have a Wonderful Day!
