For those (like me!) who are naturally super flexible in your hip flexors & that stretch doesn’t feel like anything — I find it helps to bend forward and lean to the side opposite to the hip your stretching! 😊
Week Two if the beginner’s calendar is complete! So happy to be on this journey.
I literally cannot straighten my legs when I lean forward or true to bring my pull my legs to me, the only place I can have a straight leg while laying down is about 2 or 3 feet off the ground 🤣 I don’t know what I should do about this, half the stretches on this video I can’t even do
anyone know the first song in this vid?
Hi I have Really Flexible hip flexes and I sit in the normally in everyday life so how can I make it harder cause right now it does nothing. But I LOVE this video so much it helps me sleep.
Love this. Would love to find a way to build up to being flexible to sit Indian style. I couldn’t even get my foot on my thigh 🙁
This is a phantastic routine to do anytime. I only think, that the poses aren’t being held nearly long enough. I do a lot of stretching and split training actually and wie rarely hold the poses less then 30 seconds, often more. Especially for that pancake stretch I personally need at least 20-30 second for my hip flexors and thighs to give even a little and for me to get into a forward bend, especially by keeping a straight back. The exercises themselves are really good and the whole routine really flows 🙂 I now use it with the blogilates timer and have modified the time for holding the poses to my specific needs.
This is wonderful. Did that in the morning, but after someone REALLY angered me and now I’m still angry, but calm underneath and that’s fantastic.
Currently super angry myself, hope I see the same effect 🙂
This is one of my favorite videos on your channel!! it really helps get me ready for bed.
Love this workout to de-stress and relax anytime day or night.
Hi Cassey! Thank You for This original vidéo!!
I cant thank You enough for all the Things you give us! ?
So yesterday i was at work during lunch break and i decided to do 6mns sexy arms and i looked like an idiot trying to hide from the window not to be seen!! So i thought maybe you could do a vidéo where we can do some workout from our desk? So we can workout/relax even at work. I get on my feet and walk as much as I can but would love to do more.

This is a great idea! I would love to see a ‘stretch from your desk’ video that you can do at work, would be so nice to feel this relaxed all the time 🙂
I enjoyed doing this video very much. Your videos have helped me improve my strength markedly for the last 3-4 years.
You mentioned that you have been using a ballet foot stretcher to improve your arch lately. As an amateur ballet dancer for over a decade, I must include a word of warning about those foot stretchers. The ones that are stretchy like a resistance band are safe because they mold to your foot, you can control how hard you stretch, and you use your own muscles to achieve the arch so you can’t overdo it as much.
BUT, those stretchers that are like wooden molds (or, worse, the ones that look like a torture chamber) are not safe. You shove your foot into it in the hopes that you will fit a mold that was not built for you. You can see the obvious problem with that. And since they don’t utilize your muscles to achieve the arch (actually they work against your muscles), they don’t help you develop the strength that must come with the flexibility that allows you to hold your arch in place.
While some dancers swear by those wooden stretchers, many, many experts strongly discourage their use. I don’t mean to be critical of you, I just don’t want to see you (or anyone else following you) get injured! I love you, your mission, and everything you stand for!
