Moving our bodies can help us to calm our minds. This set of 7 brief videos are reminders to get up, stretch and take a pause when you need it. These mindful movements presented by our guide, physical therapist Dr. Ellen Anderson, are intended to address targeted areas to help us gently stretch and release tension such as our breath, back and neck. Each video reviews the interaction between mind and body and demonstrates simple practices that are accessible to most. The next time you feel tension starting to take over, give one of our videos a try!
Please discuss physical activity with your medical provider before you begin. These videos are not intended to replace medical treatment, if you are experiencing pain please seek immediate medical care.
