Quick Fix Yoga
Timeless Fitness Tip
Yoga poses are intended to engage the mind as well as the body. Yoga practitioners even believe certain poses can retrain your muscles to relax in situations where they might have become tense.
Following are a couple suggestions for quick fix yoga moves.
The Child's Pose. Sit with your legs under you, buttocks resting on your heels, knees and feet together. Fold your self over your lower body and place your forehead against the floor. Rest your hands on the floor by your feet with your palms up. Breathing gently through your nose, relax into this position feeling the release in your hips. Hold for 15 seconds.
The Resting Pose. Lie face up with your legs at least hip-width apart, and place your arms out to your sides at a 45-degree angle from your body. Feel your abdomen rise and fall with each breath as your focus on releasing tension each time you exhale. Hold for 15 seconds. Repeat several times - as long as you want.
Result. The next time you have a stressful day, release the pressure with a couple of yoga poses guaranteed to calm you.
