Hello to all! It’s time to add another pose to your repertoire and learn more about intense stretching. This wonderful Gate Pose stretch will open up whole side body, while increasing strength and balance. This is one of my favorite poses to start the day and wake the body up from a night’s sleep. Try it any time of the day to feel rejuvenated. Happy Stretching!
