You don’t need a big chunk of time to get all the benefits of yoga. By weaving some simple moves into activities, you're already doing throughout the day. You can get more energy, feel less stressed and be stronger.
Here are five moves you can do anywhere. The Spinal Twist is a great move to do in your car before or after your commute. Take your right hand and place it on your left leg and the other hand behind you. And gently rotate your body, twisting to the side; looking back as far as possible. Make sure you are sitting nice and tall reaching your head up toward the sky and take deep breaths and release it and then switch to the other side. This is a great stretch to release muscle tension and to fuse road rage.
You can even do this move when you’re stock in traffic. When you’re stock at your desk for hours, the Back Bend is a great way to energize and stretch out those muscles. Sit on the edge of your chair and place your hands behind you with your finger tips, facing forward, then gently pull your shoulders back lifting your chest and your head up toward the ceiling, squeezing those shoulder blades together and opening up that chest. And hold it there with nice deep breaths and release. This is a good move to do about once an hour when you’re sitting for long periods of time.
When your stuck in a line at the grocery store or at the bank, you can strengthen your body by doing a yoga move called the Tree pose. Pick up one foot and place your foot behind your cuff, balancing on one leg. This will strengthen your legs and your torso and help you to stand up a little taller. You can do this anytime and most people won’t even know you are doing a yoga move. Just make sure you switch legs.
At night when you are cooking in the kitchen, you can relax by doing a yoga move called the Downward Dog. This is a modified version. You want to take the back of a chair or counter, place your palms on top and walk your feet out, so that they are directly beneath your, bringing your head down between your arms, lifting your tailbone up to the ceiling and back. Feeling that stretch up the back of the legs and up across the back of your body, up into the arms. And then walk it forward and relax.
At night before you go to bed, a Child pose is a great way to unwind. Coming down on your knees, place you hands on the floor and sit back stretching those arms out, sit back onto your heels and drop your head to the floor if that is comfortable, keeping those shoulders away from your ears, taking nice, deep breaths and relax. You can hold this position for as long as you like. When you’re done, slowly roll it up.
These moves you can do anytime, anywhere to look and feel your best.
