If you need a little relief after enjoying your huge Thanksgiving feast, instead of plopping on the couch and chewing on some Tums, try this relaxing yoga sequence to get things flowing and moving naturally.
- Begin in Mountain Pose at the front of your mat. Inhale and reach your arms straight above you.
- As you exhale, engage your abs, and fold forward with a straight back. Tuck your chin in toward your chest, relax your shoulders, and extend the crown of the head toward the floor to create a long spine. Shift weight forward into your toes, straightening the legs as much as possible. Place your hands on the ground, fingertips lining up with the toes.
- Hold here for five breaths.
