Yoga is lovely. I think everybody can agree on that. It gives you energy, makes and keeps you flexible and best of all, it’s for everybody!
I was always interested in yoga, but I didn’t have enough discipline to do it from a book. I tried it a few times, but I couldn’t get into it like that. Luckily there was YouTube and even better.. more and more yoga video’s appeared. This was so much better than doing it from a book. Now I (try to) do yoga every morning. Not for hours, but just for about 15-20 min. My day goes so much better when I start my day like that. Because I would like you to start your day this amazing as well, I’ll show you what I do.
I’m a big fan of Tara Stiles her video’s. They are easy to follow and she has a pleasant voice(which is, I think, very important as she’s the first one you’ll hear waking up). She made a lot of video’s though, very hard ones too, but for in the morning I like to keep it simple.
I always start with this one, which stretches you nicely and really wakes you up.
Then I do this one, which is sightly harder, but it’s nice for your whole body.
I end with the ‘Sun salutation’ and I do it about 3 times. Now I do this without a video, but in case you’re not familiar with the ‘Sun salutation’, I looked up an easy video, so it can help you learn how to do it.
When I have a lot of time, in the weekends for example, I sometimes do this whole routine twice or I improvise and do some lovely yoga poses by myself after the second video. I do always end with the ‘Sun salutation’ though. I love it when I have more time, because doing yoga makes such a difference to your day.
Let me know when you tried this after you wake up. I hope that you can notice a positive difference. Please share your experience in a comment. Thank you!
