Back in November, I shared a yoga anywhere post about how I worked yoga stretches and exercises into my day-to-day routine, and now I’m here to tell you, there’s more!
We all lead busy lives, and sometimes we just don’t have the time to devote to a full practice or workout. But that doesn’t mean it’s all or nothing! And heck, this is part of the reason I stay in yoga clothes all danged day.
So let’s get to some Yoga Anywhere multi-tasking!
Whenever I wash my hair, I have to blow dry it if I want it to have a chance at looking decent. But honestly, it seems like such a waste of time.
So that’s why I decided here to sit in chair pose against the wall, aka a wall sit. If you get your thighs parallel to the floor, holy crap, it burns so good!
Remember that time you bent down to pick up something off the floor and tweaked your back? Yeah?
Don’t do that! Squat instead. Instead of leaning over the trash can to trim my nails, that’s what I did. Great hip opener and leg strengthener.
If you’ve got time for reading, you’ve got time for sphinx pose. Notice I’m not slouching. Such a nice, gentle backbend.
If you’re stuck in the car (parked, of course!) waiting to pick up your kids from camp, or if you’re in the passenger seat on a road trip, seated pigeon is a wonderful stretch for the hips, glutes, and back.
Keep the foot flexed and gently guide the thigh open with your hand.
And for those times when you just need to CHILL THE FREAK OUT, there’s legs up the wall. Can’t beat it for a stress-reducer. It’s awesome before bed. You can prop up your hips with a pillow or blanket as needed.
Work these into your day, and let me know what you think!
