THE CRAB CLAW, TO STRETCH THE BACK OF THE LEGS AND THE BACK
To achieve the posture The crab claw, sit in your bathtub, stretch your legs in front of you and keep your back straight. Take a breath and then, when you breathe out, lean over your legs, hug your legs and let go of your neck. Then launch yourself into 3 breaths (for that, we avoid having our heads underwater).
GOLDFISH, TO RELEASE TENSION IN THE NECK AND SHOULDERS
Still in a seated position with your legs stretched out in front of you, place your hands flat behind you and extend your arms. Straighten the bust well, a bit as if your eyes were trying to hang the ceiling. Inhale and then, at the expiration, tilt your head back more to stretch well .
THE SOAP BUBBLE, TO RELEASE TENSION IN THE LOWER BACK
The soap bubble
Lie down in your bath then form a pretty soap bubble (or a ball let’s say) by bringing your knees against your chest. Circle your legs in your arms and take a few breaths. Super pleasant and rejuvenating.
THE TOUCHDOWN, TO RELAX AND CONCLUDE
For this position, stand cross-legged (across the width of the bathtub, otherwise it will not really pass). Place your hands on the edge of the tub. Take a breath and then tilt your chest and your head forward, until you put your forehead on the edge of the bathtub. Take advantage of this moment to view the exercises that you have just performed and release the last tensions. Afterwards, you can paddle quietly.
