Today I am super excited to show you what yoga you should do in the morning. This is such a great question because there are certainly poses that are important to do in the morning and today I am going to share with you my favourites.
Apanasana or Knee to Chest Pose
This pose will help you eliminate waste from your colon and clear your bowels for the morning.
This is one of my favourite yin yoga postures because it tonifies your kidneys and it will give you the energy the you need for the day. Make sure to hold this pose for 5 minutes and then come out and feel the rebound.
After a full night´s sleep and being relatively immobile for eight hours, your body will be somewhat stiff. You can release your spine and move it in all 4 directions from cat pose (flexion/extension, side and rotation)
Donward Facing Dog
This is a nice gentle inversion to get your day going, plus it is a whole-body pose that will lengthen the backs of your legs and your entire spine. It will also build strength in your upper body.
Breath of Joy
This breath is incredibly, uplifting and invigorating, it will clear away any of the remaining sleepy cobwebs in your mind and help you to go into your day energized. This breath encourages you to breathe into all parts of your body, deep into your lower diaphragm to begin, then into your thoracic lungs, and finally up into your clavicle area. The full exhalation encourages you to release any toxins from your lungs. This breath improves your mood and releases depression.
