Rise and shine, it’s stretching it! The best thing to do as you wake up is to implement a stretching routine for your body. Of course, it’s great if you already have a yoga or exercise routine set up in the mornings already; but for those of you who would like to introduce a quick 15-minute routine, these asanas will be perfect for stretching the body, activating the muscles and bringing confidence and balance for yourself overall. And you can do these at home.
*Tip : Try and hold each asana for at least 2 minutes.
Start by doing some gentle rotations of the neck, inhaling as you take the head back and exhaling as the chin comes down to the chest. Then move onto the feet and hands, by extending your legs forward and parallel to one another and extending your arms also with your hands in a fist. Start doing some slight rotations with your feet to warm up the ankle joints and simultaneously doing rotations of the fists, warming up the wrist joints.
