Stretch It! Chair Stretch Exercise Workshop - Virtual Event

Do we need to stretch? We do!

It is important to understand why stretching can help. And how to stretch correctly. It's about daily things, bending down to tie a shoe, walking upstairs, even just getting up off the couch.

Improving your mobility makes your daily activities easier — you can move more freely. 

Staying flexible is a good idea. It will help you:

  • Move better in a wider range of motion
  • Reduce tightness
  • Improve your posture and joint range of motion
  • Improve circulation
  • Decrease your risk of injury

Simply, it is important that you stretch.

Let’s stretch and flex together! You will be able to follow and do the chair exercises along with us. Have a firm (not cushioned), straight back chair to use for the stretch exercises.
