The Best Yoga Poses for Women to Do Daily
Yoga has been proven to reduce stress, increase flexibility and strengthen the mind. I found the best Yoga poses to do every day to make your life even better. I recommend doing these when you wake up in the morning to make you more productive and loose for the day.
The Downward Dog
From hands to knees, press your back into the downward dog. Bend your knees and reach your butt high, then slowly straighten your legs.
Pelvic tilts are subtle and don’t involve a whole lot of movement. You’re simply rocking your hips towards your face, without lifting your butt off the floor.
Step your right foot forward next to your right hand, and come into a low lunge. You may want to drop your back knee to the floor. Keep your back leg straight and lifted.
Standing forward bend
Swan dive down into standing forward bend. Move into the fold slowly to prevent injury. Once folded, you can grab your ankles and rest in the pose for 2 minutes.
Straight leg lunge
Straighten your back leg and slowly straighten the front leg as you forward bend over it. Try to keep the front foot flat on the floor and don’t force the leg to come straight up.
From the downward dog, bring your right knee forward to the floor on the outside of your right hand. Release your left knee to the floor. Square your hips towards the front of your mat.
Lay on your back to the yoga mat. Spread your arms on the ground 45 degrees and just rest there like a corpse. This will help relax your body and prepare you for the day.
Yoga has some serious benefits. Doing yoga everyday has improved my life dramatically. I have less stress, I can think clearer and my body is not as sore as it used to be. If you aren’t a big yogie yet, I totally recommend it.
