Course Description

If you've been doing yoga with me on Youtube, *THIS* is the actual process I use to take care of my own body (as a very busy person).

Join me in a tour of my home as I show you how I integrate Yin-style stretching & Self-Myofascial Release into every aspect of my day-to-day activities.

This is yoga at your desk, on a plane, in your bed like you've never seen it before.

If you're a busy person, you need to incorporate stretching INTO your day-to-day tasks.

You need to A-B-S “Always Be Stretching©" to keep your body pain free and your mind supple.

I'm stretching even as I write this on my computer, right now!

YOU should be stretching as you're reading this, but likely you're not, because you do not know how to hack stretching into your day-to-day activities. SO PLEASE let me show you how!

In 10 videos (and some bonus content) I teach you how to hack stretching into daily tasks you're already doing (like reading or laying in bed) so you can BE STRETCHING WHILE:

  • Sitting at a desk
  • In meetings at work (no one can tell – it's amazing!)
  • Watching your favorite TV shows
  • Reading your favorite book
  • Sleeping (yes, really!)
  • Riding in the passenger seat of a car
  • Seated in an an airplane
  • Laying in bed

in order to

  • Counteract wrist/shoulder/back pain from typing and mousing
  • Heal your hands from texting
  • Release your low back
  • Perform self-myofascial release and experience a pain-free body

I show you how to do these things in a way that's NOT a yoga class, but just part of your daily LIFE.

For example, I'll show how I lengthen my spine every night (preventing low back pain) using 3 props, in bed, while reading a book.

Why NOT be passively stretching by positioning your body in a way it can open while you are doing other things?

Let's get started!

FAQ

What level is this course for? Is it OK if I'm a beginner at yoga?Yes! These are stretching hacks you can do throughout your day-to-day, not yoga classes. Everyone can do them. I show options of how you can do the hacks if you're really stiff or if you're a flexible yoga teacher like me.

What if I'm really stiff?

Then you really need this course…I teach you how to “always be stretching.” It's this kind of constant, passive stretching built-in to your day-to-day routines (instead of something extra you have to do) that will get you results.

When do I get the props?

The first round of props SOLD OUT. If you order now, your props will ship July 15th, 2015. Pending where you live, you'll get them 7 – 10 days later (maybe sooner!)

When do I get the videos?

July 15th. If you order now, you'll get access to my 3 bonus audio files right away, as soon as you place your oder.

What if I have an injury?

I'll be addressing how to tackle common injuries like low back pain, tight shoulders and hip pain in these videos. Injuries usually require personalized attention. You'll get connected with your body on a deeper level through daily stretching, and this can only help your recovery process.

What are the requirements?

  • I use many yoga props in these videos. Props are not required for all hacks, but you may find yourself wanting to invest in a few props after seeing how they help you stretch at the ninja level

What am I going to get from this course?

  • STRETCH for over an hour a day without setting foot on a yoga mat
  • OPEN your body while working at a desk, reading, watching TV, sleeping, flying in a plane & more
  • HEAL your aches & pains with self-myofascial release and Yin yoga

What is the target audience?

  • Busy people (executives, students, parents) who want to hack more yoga & stretching into their day
  • Fitness enthusiasts who want to stretch beyond their mat

Instructor Biography

Brett Larkin, RYT Certified Yoga Teacher, Stretching Ninja, Youtuber

Most likely we already hang out on Youtube, but just in case we don't - I'm Brett. I teach my own style of vinyasa-based yoga and meditation on Youtube (where I also vlog) with people taking class with me for close to a million minutes a month. Welcome to our tribe.

What we stand for:

(1) healing yourself through movement with no judgements

(2) personalizing your practice because you are a super unique snowflake

(3) bringing your yoga off the mat and into your life so you can be the most rad version of you

I've taught yoga at places like Google, Pinterest, Equinox top SF studios and have been known to dabble in also teaching Bar Method, self-myofascial release & dance. Let's be friends!
