Bedtime Stretches Part 5: Thoracic Extension

???BEDTIME STRETCHES: Thoracic extension(5/7)???

This is a great postural stretch to do just before bed as it helps to unwind the slouched posture from working at a desk all day and can relax and calm the nervous system.

Place a foam yoga block in between the shoulder blades and lay with your arms stretched out to each side. This can also be done by laying on a foam roller that runs the length of your spine.

Start by lying in this position for 1-5 minutes and work up to 15 minutes.Have some lavender or cedar wood essential oil in a diffuser and listen to calming music or an audio book to relax before bed.
