Shoulders feeling stiff from the winter cold? 

A long travel weekend?

Sitting all day at your desk?

This kind of tension usually creates elevated shoulders, a rounded forward chest, and a 'holding' in your upper back. De-stress (from any/all of the above) with me in this #stretchbreakwithelyse - you can do in a train, plane, or office chair. :)

Follow along with me in this 4 min video.

With love and upper body stretching, 


PS - I'll be back at the airport tomorrow doing this too! Latin Lover and I are going on a delayed honeymoon and we're starting it off with a 10+ hour flight, soooo yeah, I'll definitely be doing this at the airport. Want to see some of our adventures? Follow along with us on instagram

PPS - What are your favorite ways to stay fit while you travel? I'm going to be writing more about this coming up, so I'd love to incorporate your tips! Post them in the comments below! 


I'm a personal trainer, fitness coach, and yoga teacher who gets people moving with in-person training and my signature online 21 day workout program. I want to help people drop the guilt/shame game around exercise and start working out with ease and kindness. When I'm not doing squats and sun salutations, I'm dressed up in vintage lindy hop dancing or gathering other Lovely Lady Entrepreneurs to talk about their careers and living their most passionate lives. Start moving with me today with these FREE stretch breaks you can do to feel more energized and aligned during your day! -
