Hi friends!!! It’s been a while since I posted on here (I’m sorry!) but I am going to try to make time to write every day and most definitely post more often! For today I wanted to share 5 daily yoga poses anyone and everyone can and should do EVERY DAY for better health!
To experience the maximum benefits hold each pose for at least 5-10 breaths. You can do them in any order that feels good to you; and be sure to do a few rounds of the poses in succession, I like to repeat 5+ times.
Twisting chair strengthens the mid and low back, increases flexibility throughout the spine, tones the internal organs (including the kidneys and digestive organs) and aids in detoxification.
Wide leg forward fold stretches and strengthens the hamstrings, calves, hips, low back, and spine. The various arm positions stretch your shoulders, wrists, forearms, and upper back.
Downward facing dog strengthens the hands, wrists, low-back, hamstrings, calves and Achilles tendon. Tis posture can also decrease back pain by strengthening the entire back and shoulder girdle.
Anjaneyasana releases tension held in your hips, stretches your hamstrings, quads, and groin; this posture also strengthens your knees, and pelvic floor while building mental focus.
Bridge pose opens the chest, heart, and shoulders. It stretches the spine, the back of the neck, the thighs, and the hip flexors. This posture also stimulates the abdominal organs and thyroid glands, which improves digestion and helps to regulate metabolism.
I hope you enjoy these 5 daily yoga poses, and if you have any questions please feel free to leave me a comment below!
