Naomi Joy Fitness: 10 Min Daily Stretching Routine / Yoga Stretch

10 Min Daily Stretching Routine / Yoga Stretch is feel good stretch from Naomi Joy. She creates primarily excellent rebounder workouts but she also has a few stretching workouts. I’ve done all of her short ones (10 minutes or less) but have not reviewed them here. I enjoy this one so much that I decided this one needed to be reviewed (the others may also be reviewed eventually). The setting for this workout is a park full of Cherry Blossom trees. Naomi does the flexibility routine underneath a beautiful tree in full bloom. Pretty lanterns are also hanging from the branches. Not only is it a deep and feel good stretch but the setting is aesthetically relaxing. The workout is done voice over and set to relaxing music. I have used this stretching routine several ways. I have used it to finish off a tough strength or cardio workout and I have also used it as a fitness break during my work day.
