Yoga is stimulating. It calms you, fills you with energy and keeps your body mind and soul rejuvenated. A mini dose of yoga every day will keep you high on spirit and energy all day.
Downward Facing Dog
Downward Facing Dog is an amazing energy-reviving pose. It relieves fatigue and exhaustion and brings back all your energy. If you had a long day walking on your heels, this asana is best to relieve the pain by stretching your calves, hamstrings and Achilles tendons. It also strengthens and tones your arms and releases stress from shoulders and spine.
Standing Forward Bend
Have you ever flipped your head over to blow dried the underside hair? When you flip your head back, your face looks rejuvenated. This is exactly that you have to do in this asana. Standing straight and bending forward as low as you can reach! This will give you cheeks a nice flush and calm your brain. It reduces fatigue and reverses gravity on your spine, giving relief to your back muscles.
Sitting at a computer, all day long gives you a rounded shoulder and hell of a back pain. Bridge position is a backbend that opens your chest, neck, shoulders and stretches the spine. Your chest, neck, and shoulders that have been slouching all day, get a good expansion.
Seated Spinal Twist
This is the simplest twist to energize the spine and stimulate all internal organs. It also encourages detoxification and if you are planning to have few drinks in the evening party, this twist is must in morning. Seated Spinal Twist stretches your back and neck muscles, which releases all stress you had at work.
Sit & Breathe
Relax and feel confident by saying – yes, I feel good and Breathe! Sit comfortably with your legs crossed. You can also sit on a pillow to elevate your hips. Keep your spine tall and eyes closed. Keep your mouth closed and breathe through your nose. Inhale to a count of five and exhale to a count of 5. While it is not actually an asana, but it’s called controlled breathing or pranayama and it’s extremely balancing. It calms your body, mind, soul, and thoughts.
