Starting your day with some light exercise or stretching is a great way to build some inner heat and get the blood flowing, especially on those cold winter mornings. The movement and breathing that comes along with any yoga routine will help to fortify you against the day. You can always find that exercise in any number of movements like pushups, sit-ups or squats but it’s also nice to follow a routine where it’s all wrapped up and neatly contained in one 15-20 minute yoga routine. This is where today’s video from Sarah Beth Yoga comes in.
This particular flow is relatively gentle and tailored perfectly for a morning yoga stretch without being too extreme. And of course, yoga is all built around the breath, so don’t forget to breathe, relax and most importantly, enjoy.
Here are some of the postures and poses which you’ll find in the above 20 minute yoga video:
