When you’re falling into a busy period of year, sometimes you slipped on your yoga exercise to the nth number of your priority. The best way to avoid this problem is to practice in practical way. You’d be able to relax and stay present amidst the hustle and bustle.
This set of yoga sequence below is a brief exercise that you can use to release stress and tension on your body due to the tight daily routines. You only need to set several minutes aside of your day and start without any fancy materials needed.
- Begin the yoga exercise with child’s pose by deepening breath and concentrating on your relaxed body. Set your hands and knees into the position, alternate between inhaling while back-bending and exhaling while rounding up and forward. Repeat for 3 to 5 times.
- Locate your neutral spin then expand your left leg and right arm. Pause for a moment, then bend your back and lift your left knee until it touches your forehead. Set your leg and arm straight, then flex your knee and touch your right hand behind and around your body by grabbing foot or ankle part.
- Set your leg free and practice downward-facing dog. Your left knee must touch the ground and your right leg should be set forward by stacking knee above ankle. Raise and lengthen your arms through the torso, stretch on the front part of your left hip by shifting the weighs forward.
- The next yoga exercise pose is to bring your right hand to right leg then lift your torso while stretching to left.
- Make a prayer position; twist your palm slowly over the front of your leg. If possible, link your elbow on the right knees’ outside part. Press both of your palms and look over your shoulder.
- Raise your arms above head and arch back to make a small backbend slowly. Draw in your belly and extend your chin from chest.
- Set your hands on both sides of your right foot. Make both of your foot touch and practice downward-facing dog, then practice the child’s pose back. Repeat the sequence for the other side of your body.
This short yoga exercise only takes up about five minutes of your time. If possible, you might want to practice it outside to get positive energy boost by the change of nature and scenery. Although brief, it can bring you the relaxation and mindfulness just as fine.
