Exhausted, overwhelmed, and wanting to be back in bed? We've all been there on Monday after a busy weekend! Instead of feeling out of sorts and wasting a perfectly good morning, take a few minutes for some time on your mat before you leave for the office. This short sequence leaves you energized, refreshed, and most importantly, ready to tackle your day head-on. If you can sneak away from your desk midday, move through these poses again once you're at the office: you'll be surprised what a huge difference this sequence can have on your day.
- Kneel on your mat with your knees hips-width distance apart, and your big toes touching behind you. Take a deep breath in, and as you exhale, lie your torso over your thighs. Try to lengthen your neck and spine by drawing your ribs away from your tailbone and the crown of your head away from your shoulders.
- Rest your arms beside your legs, with palms facing up, or try extending your arms out in front of you.
- Stay here for 10 breaths.
