5 minute yoga boost

a nice little sequence for recharging energy in the afternoon :)


1. regulate your breath! start with square breathing (sitting upright, breathe in for 4 counts, pause for 4, exhale for 4 counts, pause for 4. repeat for 5-6 cycles)

2. loosen up your shoulders... hunching is such a common habit, try garudasana (eagle) arms or heart opening with clasped hands and straight elbows behind your back.

3. standing forward bend - hold on to your elbows and free the neck by shaking head (carefully!)

4. try a variation of pidgeon pose - lying on your back crossing one ankle over the opposite knee with the foot flat on the ground and drawing the knee to your chest... great for opening the hips after a long time sitting. 


 

yoga at work is fun! xx
