10 Minutes - 5 Yoga Poses To Practice In The Morning....

Posted by Jeevan ॐ Mirthu Gupt on March 19, 2015 at 6:40 AM



 

The morning is one of your most crucial times when it comes to maintaining your health and fitness. Whether you work out in the AM or not, yoga is one of the most energizing ways to start your day.


 

Yoga is great for a number of reasons. First off, the stretching warms up your muscles and gets your blood circulating. This helps prepare you for whatever the day has to offer. Second, yoga is really energizing. It will wake you up mentally just as much as it will physically. And lastly, yoga is a great way to give your metabolism a boost in the morning.


 

So if you’re looking for a new and energizing way to start your days, give this 10-minute yoga routine a try. It’s a simple way to start things off on the right – and healthy – foot.


 

Do this routine for a couple of weeks, and you’ll start seeing the real benefits of yoga for improving all-around health.


 

 

Run through this sequence at least twice for a full 10-minute energizing routine…


 

Child’s Pose


 

One of my favorite ones to start with in the morning, child’s pose allows you to keep your eyes shut and wake up slowly. Simply kneel on your yoga mat, bend forward, and place your forehead on the floor as your extend your arms forward. You’ll really feel the bend in your back, and you’ll wake up your spine in seconds.

 

Stay here for 5 deep breaths.


 

Cat/Cow Pose


 

Stay on your knees on your yoga mat, and lift your head up as your rest against your palms. You should now be on all fours. This move is actually 2 poses in 1. Start by pointing your head down towards the mat and bending your back upward towards the ceiling. Hold here for 3 deep breaths, then reverse the pose as you lift your head up towards the ceiling. Hold here for another 3 breaths.


 

Downward Dog


 

Keeping your palms against the floor, extend your legs as your balance on your toes. Pull your buttocks towards the ceiling as you move your head towards the floor, creating a V-shape with your body. The goal here is to try to create a straight line with your arms, neck, shoulders, and back, bending at your hips only. Hold here for at least 5 breaths.


 

Forward Bend


 

Stand up straight now, placing your feet a few inches apart. Bend forward at your hips, and allow your head to fall towards the floor, coming as close to your legs as possible. To help ease yourself into the pose, grab the back of your calves with your palms and pull your head inward to your body. Hold here for 5 breaths.


 

Triangle Pose


 

This last one will really enliven your body and get you energized. Stay in standing position, and extend your right foot out to the side by about 3 feet. Extend your arms up towards the ceiling, then bring your right hand down and place it on your right ankle. Extend your left hand towards the ceiling and look upward as you engage your abs and core. Hold here for 3 breaths, then repeat on the opposite side.
