Naomi Joy Fitness: 7 Min Stretching Session

Naomi Joy has created another, slightly shorter stretching workout. Her other one is 10 Min Daily Stretching Routine (which is actually 11 minutes). I love that routine. This one is also wonderful and a little bit shorter, which makes it perfect to add onto the end of a strength or cardio workout. This one is more lower body focused whereas her 10 minute one is more total body. That worked perfectly for me the first time I did this routine because I used it to finish off a long and tough lower body workout. This is a full body stretch; it just hits the lower body thoroughly. This routine is also set outdoors. Naomi is on a pier with her yoga mat. Water is behind her and the city behind that. People are out kayaking on the water. Beautiful, relaxing scenery. This session is done voice over and set to relaxing music. I adore Naomi’s rebounder workouts but I am also loving her wonderful stretch routines.

7 Min Stretching Session is 7:22 minutes.
