In need of a good total body stretch? Try this 10-minute routine led by Leah Zahner. Leah will lead you through a gentle series of stretches that will loosen up your muscles, improve your flexibility, and leave you feeling amazing. All you need for this total body stretch is a mat and a little space. No equipment is necessary, and you can do this 10-minute stretch anytime, anywhere. You can do it at the end of your workout or even just on its own as a great way to stretch your muscles throughout the day. Stretching helps boost circulation and blood flow, can improve your posture, and re-energize you when you feel fatigued. Ready to give it a try?

Leah will lead you through different stretches to loosen up all the major muscle groups. You’ll start with some movements to stretch out your neck and shoulders, and then work your way down, working your back and legs, too! You can try this 10-minute total body stretch on its own at the end of a long work day or simply add it onto the end of one of your GHU TV workouts! Stretching after an intense workout is so crucial. It helps loosen up tight muscles, bring your heart rate down, and can prevent soreness and stiffness the next day. Being flexible and giving your body a total body stretch can also prevent injury for future workouts.

Hopefully this total body stretch will feel like a welcome reward from all the hard work you’re doing on getting fit. When you’re on a fitness journey, it’s so important to remember other parts of the equation aside from full-on exercise: like stretching, eating right, and getting a quality night’s sleep. If you liked this routine, you can also try this gentle morning yoga stretch or this awesome yoga stretch sequence.

    Leah this is my go to stretch in the morning, as well as after a GHTV workout. Thank you so much. I'd love to see more. I did not enjoy the 2nd stretching 10 minute workout too much.
