Whether you might be staying home with a new baby or working too many hours at the office, anytime is a good time for yoga. You can do yoga stretches and postures in bed or even while taking a break at work.
Hundreds of fitness seekers use their lunch hour to squeeze in exercise and take off extra pounds. Practicing yoga in the middle of day some people think is the break that they need to face the afternoon.
Lunch-hour fitness routines become more popular in warm weather.
Kick Back Log-on Pose: Interlace your fingers behind your head. Relax your elbows and shoulders. Smile, breathe and stretch your elbows back. Let the tightness release slowly.
E-mail Meditation: While reading your e-mail, remember to breathe slowly and focus your attention on your breath. Remember to breath.
Photocopier Stretch: Place your hands on the edge of the copier. Stand back with feet apart. Drop your head and chest. Breathe and relax your shoulders.
Close-the-deal Warrior Pose: Raise your arms to the side with fingers pointed. Take a big step to the side, with your right foot out and knee bent, your left foot planted, left leg straight. Keep the upper body straight and strong, shoulders relaxed. Relax into the stretch – remember to breath. Return to a standing position, switch sides, and repeat.
