Whether you want to de-stress, relax tight muscles, or just calm your mind, yoga might be what you're looking for. Yoga doesn't have to be strenuous. You can experience the benefits with very basic moves.
Savasana - Also called 'corpse pose' involves lying on your back and relaxing all of your muscles as if sinking into the ground. Follow your breathing and allow your thoughts to drift away. Savasana is often integrated into the end of a yoga sequence.
Full Body Stretch - While standing or lying down, bring your arms over head and extend from the tips of your fingers to the tips of your toes. This energizing movement brings oxygen into your muscles and organs.
Twists - Helps with unhappy guts and brings gentle muscle relief to your hips, back, shoulders and neck. Twists are detoxifying poses that help release emotions.
Give these gentle stretches a try with Brett Larkin in this 15 minute relaxing yoga series.
