We all know the benefits of Yoga. Yoga has been around for centuries and it is still one of the most popular forms of exercise today. Yoga can be used to improve your health, help you lose weight, and reduce stress levels. Yoga poses also provide many other benefits that could make a great addition to your daily routine! In this blog post we are going to discuss five yoga poses that should be performed everyday!
Cat Cow Stretch:
Cat cow stretch is one of the most common Yoga poses. It is performed by alternately pushing your chest in and arching back to a cat pose like shown in the image, then tucking in your chin and pushing your chest out to do a cow pose. This Yoga stretch can be used before or after any exercise routine as it helps release tension from the spine while improving flexibility in the hips and shoulders.
Downward Dog Pose:
Downward Dog Pose can be performed by bending your knees and placing the tops of your feet on the floor, with a straight line from head to tailbone while pushing your torso with your hands as you feel a stretch in your hamstrings. The Yoga pose is often done in preparation for more advanced Yoga poses like plank or warrior. Downward Dog Pose stretches out your lower body while strengthening your upper back muscles. It also helps improve blood circulation around the spine, relieving any stiffness you may have felt there after sitting at work all day! Downward dog pose requires focus so it can be used as an excellent Yoga meditation technique. Most people find this Yoga position difficult because it puts pressure on palms that are usually placed flat against the ground but if you give yourself some time to get use to doing down dog without straining too hard then soon enough you will be able to unlock mobility.
Warrior III Pose:
Warrior III Pose can be a great Yoga for beginners because it mainly targets your thighs and hamstrings. It also strengthens the lower back which means you will have an easier time maintaining a neutral spine when in arm balances such as crow or handstand. A Warrior III Yoga pose is performed by standing with feet apart, one foot ahead of the other in a lunge position while both hands are placed on top of each thigh muscle. The hips should be facing outwards and not up towards the ceiling like they would if performing chaturanga dandasana (chaturanga). When positioned correctly, this Yoga pose can stretch chest muscles that may feel tight after sitting at work all day!
