It’s time to find your balance — not physically, but mentally. Balancing your mind allows your body to follow suit. We know it’s difficult to balance everything in a hectic life: Transportation, work, family, and even your own worries and fears can throw you off. The more it’s bottled up, the more stress starts to creep in. With stress comes a whole host of unwanted side effects. We created an intro to yoga sequence to help! Get ready to chill out and de-stress with this Yoga Routine for Beginners. It won’t take long to see that a steady practice can lead to a happier life.
Stress manifests itself in different ways. Frequent headaches, feeling lethargic, becoming agitated, or never being able to relax or quiet your mind may be signs you’re suffering from stress. Stress can cause an inability to focus on your daily life or enjoy things you once did. One of the best ways to reduce stress is to work with yourself through a comfortable and freeing yoga routine.
Chill Out and De-stress with this Yoga Routine for Beginners
We chose seven poses that transition from being upright in a squat all the way down to being on your back, relaxed and free. The key to success with this routine is to focus on your breathing. Each inhale and exhale paves the way to a more balanced mind and body. Grab your mat, get comfortable, and get ready to shed that bad energy that’s been lingering around!
What to do: Watch the instructional videos below to get a grasp on proper form. Hold each pose for 15 breaths with no rest in between. Complete two rounds. Between the rounds, take a little break, grab some water, and get ready to go again! Perform this routine as often as needed, in the morning, afternoon, and/or at night.
