Sometimes it is tough to fall asleep at night, especially if you had a long day or a big day coming up.
Worry no more because here are 3 Pilates stretches to help you relax and calm down.
1: Wall roll-down
- Stand with back against a wall, feet hip-width apart and about 12 inches from the wall. Inhale, pull abdominals in, and press entire back to the wall.
- As you exhale, roll down until only tailbone and buttocks are touching the wall. Relax neck and shoulders and let head and arms hang.
- Take deep, slow breaths and circle arms inward 5 times and then outward 5 times. Slowly roll up.
