"I've never had an at home product that works this well and makes me feel so great, and with minimal effort!!!" Sarah Kramer
The Beam by Nimbleback comes with 4 simple stretching exercises. All you need is The Beam and your breath.
Yoga inspired stretching and deep breathing will help you release muscle tension. Use this tool for 10 minutes a day to help relax and loosen tight muscles.
Getting on and off of The Beam
Sit down on a mat. Line The Beam (logo side up) down the centre of your back leaving a fist width from your tailbone.
Bend your knees and while holding The Beam, slowly lie back onto the mat. Alternatively, lay The BeamTM down behind you on the mat. Slowly lie back centering The Beam with your spine. Leave a fist width from your tailbone.
To get off, raise one arm up and roll over to your side. Curl up into the fetal position or go into child’s pose for a few breaths before rising up. Take your time as you might be light headed.
Once you are lying on The Beam you have different options for your arms:
• Palms facing up or down
• Hands on your ribs or stomach
• Extend arms straight out to form a cross
• Extend arms and bend your elbows
Relax on The Beam while using your breathing to release tension in your back.
