Gentle Yoga Sequnce to UnWind, Improve Flexibility and Relieve Pain

When I first started my yoga training, I was the only trainee in the class that could not touch the flooreven with my fingertips. 

It was so frustrating!

Years have passed, thousands of hours on the mat, too many self inflicted injuries have revealed that a daily practice is the only way to experience ease throughout the day and manage the challenges of changing seasons, travel and over work.

I found something that works for me, maybe it will work for you…

The sequence in this video is a wonderful entry for beginning yoga students, or people living with chronic pain or those of us that just need to unwind a bit before bed. It’s also a delicious break for experienced yoga students.

The 3 really cool things about are….

  • It’s simple. You don’t need years of yoga or even know a single yoga pose.
  • It’s short, less than 7 minutes.
  • It feels good. It opens and releases the meridian lines in the body creating ease and promotes health and vitality.

Try it yourself.

Try it 10 days in a row and let me know what changes for you.


Tell me…

Do you practice yoga? Does your body hurt most of the time? What have you done that works for you?


Do you like this? Do you know someone that could benefit from this? If you do, share it, they will thank you for it.


  1. Love it Rommy! I developed my own yoga stretch routine that takes about 10 minutes and works well for me after having some injuries over the years. I like your gentle flowing approach and think you are absolutely right that consistency is key to maintaining flexibility. I will be giving your sequences a try. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I love this! Being an “all or nothing” girl in the past, I appreciate having tool like this that I can access anywhere. It makes daily practive just that much easier!! Thanks again!

    • Thank you Kami. I’ve been there tooo! All or nothing, no pain, no gain and scoffed at practices like this. Now they are the sweetest moments for me. Enjoy and be well!

  3. yes Rommy I do! and I couldn’t live without my practice. flexibility in the body correlates to flexibility in the mind. and we all need more of that, right? 😉

  4. I like the video Rommy, I am going to do this with you in the morning. I am a strength trainer and a runner- I definitely need to incorporate more of this. I have a bit of a problem with the quiet part of this and that is what I really, really need. Thanks. ~Cathy

    • Thanks Cathy! Yes, the quiet is a toughie and can make us uncomfortable and yes…we all really need the quiet. I used to be a total gym rat, body builder and fitness competitor so I get what your saying…it is hard to quantify (validate) the holistic value of a total body release.

  5. Great video Rommy! I’m going to incorporate this in my morning routine. My flexibility is horrible lol and I’m always working on improving it. Perhaps this will also help out with my lower back stiffness which I believe was due to a car accident I had a few years ago. Thanks for sharing!
