Want to put your relaxation into motion?
In the spirit of all things relaxing, yoga teacher extraordinaire Lauren Turner notes the importance of stretching first thing in the morning.
“The most important exercise I would recommend upon waking up would be finding a comfortable position whether it’s sukhasana (easy pose) or simply sitting off the bed and taking 10 deep ujjayi breaths. This small but power gestures allows your mind to focus on the most powerful tool we have (our breath) and gives you a moment to set your intention for the day. I would then warm up my neck by gently turning the head left to right, up and down, and in a circle in both directions. We hold a ton of tension in the neck as we sleep trying to support the head so giving it some love in the am is telling ourselves we are aiming for a stress free day!”
“I would then practice a gentle back bend off the side of bed, everything below my shoulders would be supported by the bed. Backbends are heat stimulating and invigorating postures that help to wake us up. Also allowing the head to freely relax upside down opens up the muscles in the neck and throat. I would take a moment to lay down for a few breaths to allow my spine to go back to neutral before moving to the next pose.”
“I would then move on to paschimottanasana (seated forward fold) with a pillow under my belly to help support my back. The key to early morning stretching is to gentle wake up the body, we want to set a tone to help us move effortlessly throughout the day.”
