MELTed Self-Care Instagram Challenge Day 9
I can’t believe this challenge will be over in 5 days!!! I’m so happy you all have joined this movement to live our best and healthiest lives! Here is a recap of Day 9 MELTed Self Care and Day 23 of Flow it Together Yoga Challenge.
MELTed Self Care Challenge Day 9: Bent Knee Press (Quadriceps)
Snap a pic of the Bent Knee Press from the lower body length sequence or your favorite quadriceps stretch!
This is another one of my favs! It opens the front of my hips like nothing else! I’ve had back issues since college and this move has made a tremendous difference in the balance between the upper and lower fibers of my psoas.
For many of us the quadriceps are a power muscle that are easily overused during exercise and also locked short from sitting. Restricted quads make it difficult to access the glutes and can create low back and knee strain.
The Bent Knee Press is an effective, efficient way to open up the front of the thigh. Combine it with the Hip to Heel Press and you might feel like you have a new set of legs!

More often than not we’ll never have an answer for what we are going through, and if we did would it really suffice? In this moment I feel a bit numb, the heart opener helped, and so does wisdom from the beautiful Maya Angelou! Om Namah Shivaya
“You may encounter many defeats,
but you must not be defeated.
In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats,
so you can know who you are,
what you can rise from,
how you can still come out of it.” – Maya Angelou

Are sleepless nights your norm? Find yourself flipping through TV channels watching infomercials at 3AM feeling plain frustrated? Are your days filled with endless coffee + RedBull (insert stimulant of choice)? Maybe you've even been down the Western route with...
