I first tried yoga 3 years ago, while backpacking solo through South-East Asia. I had no flexibility AT ALL, couldn’t even touch my ankles, but mainly I have a scoliosis which can be very painful if I don’t keep a strong back! Yoga seemed the perfect solution for both problems. I was very frustrated at first, especially looking at all the amazingly beautiful yogis around...but I felt also very inspired. I always love a challenge. I’m so happy I came across that one. I’m currently working on my harmstrings to get more flexibility and put less pressure on my lower back when falling forward. After a few weeks, I can already see results!
Yesterday's session with @commandohealthandfitness and I've felt really good today and not my tight achy self!! Looking forward for what's to come!!! Check him out guys and use code THOMMO10 for some DOLLAR of treatments

An exercise I've been getting quite a few clients to do recently (and my mum - thanks to her for filming )
Single leg Romanian deadlift... normally just end up calling it 'one leg balance'
This is awesome for balance, flexibility, toning legs and bum, and strengthening everything from your back to your feet including hips, knees, ankles, and core.
- Doing it without shoes on improves strength, stability and proprioception in the ankles and feet - something that we lose a lot of as we get older (unless we do something about it).
Most of my clients are women age 40-60 and as well as feeling the benefits, they really enjoy the challenge of this type of exercise. It's tricky to balance at first but just like anything, whatever your age, it improves a lot with practice
The goal here is to keep your back and body straight as you tip forward, bending at your hip and sticking your leg out straight behind you.
Once you feel a stretch in your hamstring (back of the thigh) on your standing leg, slowly return back to the start. Back of legs and bum on the standing leg is where you want to feel it most.
Aim to do a set of 5-10 on one leg then swap. 2 - 3 total sets is good.
This is also a brilliant exercise to try at home without weights (and away from anything breakable or anything that could break you if you fall into it )
Have you tried anything like this before, or fancy giving it a go?
What's important to you when it comes to training your body -
losing weight, toning up, getting strong, improving balance and coordination, being more flexible, or a combination of the above?
