5 Yoga Poses You Should Do Daily
Here are 5 yoga poses anyone can do, and everyone should do EVERY DAY for better health! Hold each pose for at least 5-10 breaths; for maximum benefits do a few rounds of the poses in succession!
Twisting Chair | Parivrtta Utkatasana
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 | Prasarita Padottanasana
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.
Low Lunge | Anjaneyasana
Anjaneyasana releases tension held in your hips, stretches your hamstrings, quads, and groin; this posture also strengthens your knees, while building mental focus.
Bridge | Setu Bandha Sarvangasana
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.
Downward Facing Dog | Adho Mukha Svānāsana
Downward facing dog strengthens the hands, wrists, low-back, hamstrings, calves and Achilles tendon. This posture can also decrease back pain by strengthening the entire back and shoulder girdle.
