You’re probably already doing hinges in your daily life, any time you pick something up off the ground or lean forward to sit down. If you experience knee or back pain, this move is especially important! In this Start with 5, Kaisa dives into the proper form for hinges, so you can be mindful of your form even when you're just bending over to pick something up.
Are you sitting down? If you are, you performed a squat today! Which means it’s especially important to have good form, since we do it so often throughout the day. Join Kaisa for a quick exploration into this basic, foundational move.
This Start with 5 talks about pulling movements, which allows us to strengthen our back. Why is this important? A stronger back = better posture and a reduced risk of injury. Let's go, Team!
The plank is a tried-and-true core strengthening move that is a great exercise to have on your movement journey. Love it or hate it, join Kaisa as she breaks down this foundational move -- hopefully you'll love it by the end!
We use our balance when we sit, turn our head, and walk -- it's foundational not just to our movement practice, but to our everyday lives! Improving balance can help reduce the risk of falls and injuries, and who doesn’t want that? Join Kaisa in this Start with 5 as we learn all about how to consciously (and safely!) work on our balance.
