Class 491: Reformer Stretch Workout

30 min
What You'll Need:
Seeing as it was often said, "Your equipment is like your dance partner, you work with it......not at it", Amy puts together a series of stretches on the Reformer that satisfy the need to stretch the major muscles of the lower extremities and hips. These are stretches that feel great after a long walk, run, hike or bike ride and are not altogether traditional stretches on the Reformer. Creativity and exploration often lead one on a journey to find a new way of doing, sensing or moving. This stretch series would be wonderful with a little light music to help you relax and move through the positions and can be done many times over. Enjoy!

Just what the doctor ordered.. wonderful stretch series Amy and I can incorporate alot of these moves in my teaching. I have several clients that are runners so just KNOW they will love these!

Hi Jamie! Yay, so glad these stretches came at a good time for you. They will absolutely be easy in incorporate into any Reformer session and can be a nice break from the 'norm' of stretches we typically do. Regarding the shirt....! I'm a Booty Barre teacher also and this is one of their shirts. It's really comfy, check it out!
