Morning Yoga for Beginners in Under 10 Minutes! January 17 2014, 1 Comment

Rise and shine! It happens to me every morning; the terrible struggle to get out of bed.  Between my cozy warm bed, fat purring cat, and soft sheets the LAST thing I want to do is get out of bed.

But my pesky alarm clock wont let up so i reluctantly remove my now disgruntled cat from my chest and roll out of bed into what I call RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN TO PUT ON WARMER CLOTHES BECAUSE NOW I'M FREEZING COLD. I thought to myself, there has to be a better way to wake up in the morning.

 So, I don't have a solution to the imminent freezing sensation of getting out of bed. But when I do, you will all be the first to know. 

BUT as i was perusing Pinterest (my absolute FAVORITE website) I came across some daily morning yoga posses. 

I'm the kind of person who sleeps until the LAST possible moment, so my first thought was, I do NOT have time for morning yoga. But I hated the grumpy mood I would be in more than taking 10 a few minuets to stretch out before my shower.  

 

So, here it is to you, my final list of my favorite yoga stretches to start off your day. These are BEGINNER poses, because lets be honest, the majority of us don;t feel like being a contortionist first thing in the morning, and IF you do, I tip my hat to you!

 

Hold each pose for 30 seconds and repeat on the opposite side when necessary. Make sure to focus on your breathing. Count on the inhale and breathe out all tension and stress on the exhale. 

 

 

Now waking up is slightly more tolerable, and I can start my day on a positive note! Enjoy and happy stretching!
