SaraBethYoga: 15 Minute Bedtime Yoga Stretch for Chest & Back

15 Minute Bedtime Yoga Stretch for Chest & Back is a routine of very deep yoga stretches for your upper body from Sara Beth. It says chest and back in the title but your shoulders get some intense stretching, too. I actually found some of the stretches uncomfortable but that is probably because I have a long history of chronic shoulder problems. As I was doing this practice, it felt like my upper body has tightened up; which tells me that I really need to spend more time doing focused yoga practices like this that give my upper body some deep stretching and mobility.

15 Minute Bedtime Yoga Stretch for Chest & Back is 15:09 minutes; the practice is actually 13:45 minutes. The last minute is Sara talking about another one of her yoga practices. Equipment: fitness mat. You will hold each pose for several breaths.

  1. Child’s pose
  2. Thread the needle
  3. Cat/cow
  4. Bound locust (lay on stomach, interlace hands behind you, raise hands upward while also raising chest)
  5. Lay on stomach on mat, head turned to side (relaxing pose); bring one arm up into cactus on floor, lift torso so you are on side and bend top knee, placing foot on floor, stretching shoulder and opening chest
  6. Reclining spinal twist
  7. Repeat #4 but this time also raise the legs
  8. Repeat #5 & 6 on other side of body
  9. Child’s pose
