Recie is wearing our April look, Royal Flush.
Have you ever dealt with nagging discomfort or pain in your back? Plugging away at your computer all day, bad posture, and even a predisposition to back pain can all be contributing factors. Recie Munson, a vinyasa, restorative, and kids yoga instructor, knows just the thing to help you manage it. Before we get into her yoga flow for your lower back, we asked her some questions about her fitness and how she stays balanced.
What is your favorite workout move?
My favorite fitness workout is boxing! I don’t have a specific favorite move.
How has fitness impacted your life?
The mind-body connection has been a game-changer for me. I believe mindfulness has been more impactful than the actual physical-fitness regimen. Connecting and healing my psyche has been the driving force of every other entity of healing, including physical and emotional.
How do you stay balanced?
Learning and implementing prioritizing and loving myself first. I also stay balanced by traveling, doing yoga, meditation, taking all my vacation time, taking breaks when needed, and saying no to my non-negotiables.
How did you stay active during quarantine?
It has waxed and waned, honestly. I’ve been more into restorative yoga and light vinyasa flows.
What has helped you get through?
Definitely my support system of family, friends, and my partner. Also, knowing that this will only be temporary was very soothing.
