Do you like stretching every day? Many years ago, I was doing sports such as riding my bike, swimming and cross country skiing but I never thought that stretching was so important and they did not talk too much about it at the time.

In 2002, after I came back from Vancouver to Montreal, I used to be very stressed and looking for career change. One morning while doing my yoga practice, I had a flash and decided that I was going to take a massage course.

Before registering for the class I booked a session with the massage teacher and find out about it. However, I had a concern, because I had pain in my hands and I did not know If I could make it.

Here was the answer of the teacher; If you do the stretches that I am showing you-you will be fine. But, before it gets better it will get worse because your muscles are not accustomed to being stretched. 3 weeks later I had improved a lot and could take the class.

One year after graduating, I took a 4 day-stretching workshop for trainers and therapists in Montreal by Aaron L. Mattes from Florida. We stretched almost all muscles in our body.After the first day, I was feeling exhausted but feeling very good.

As we were going through the days I was feeling more energised and not fatigued anymore. To me, It has been an unbelievable and amazing body-mind experience. Moreover, It was a lifesaver for me.

Now, enough talking and let’s get practical. I want to show you 3 stretches that you can start with.

1 . Your hands, sometimes you don’t think that your hands are
important but they are. The finger stretch.
