It doesn't matter whether the goal is to live a healthier lifestyle to improve the way the camera perceives them, when it comes to looking their best, some people consider yoga as their smartest option. This is not just an opportunity to tone up the muscles or slim down the waistline; yoga also works at improving their frame of mind, which is probably why so many people are considering it to be their favorite choice for physical and mental improvement. Yoga is not just about improving the frame of mind, when it is time to kick-start the day, here is a high-energy yoga workout to consider.
Participants should begin by relaxing in a sitting position on their workout mat. With legs crossed and shins being held with their hands, the first step is loosened up the airwaves by slowly inhaling and exhaling. This process should last for about 3 to 4 minutes and is intended to remove any build-up of energy along the spine. As they go through the inhaling motion, the participant needs to round their spine and continue by bringing their chin as close as possible to their chest. This step should begin slowly and gradually increase until the designated time as been achieved.
The goal is to get things moving and should begin in a standing position with legs spread slightly apart to land just outside of the hips. Loosen knees and lightly bend them as the feet and toes are firmly planted into the mat. Flex and tighten muscles from head to toe before extending the arms upwards as if reaching for an average-size beach ball. With hands completely outstretched above, extend outwards to the side and begin to ball into fists. The hands should then be brought around to the front, tightening up chest muscles and returning to the beginning. Start slow and increase the speed.
With unwanted obstructions out of the way the goal should be to loosen and flex the spine and should begin by exhaling and bending forward. This should appear as an attempt to touch the toes but hands should eventually end on the floor. Begin by inhaling and taking a deep breath before leaning forward. When the position has been reached the participant should be facing the front of their legs with the palm of their hands level with their feet. This position will take some practice; however, once mastered it should be repeated at least 10 times each.
With spine and waist flexed and loose, make sure both feet are firmly planted on the mat before bending one foot upwards and grabbing it by the ankle with the hand from the same side. A good balance should be established with the remaining foot on the mat; the free hand should be positioned on the hip before extending the raised foot outwards with the assistance of the one hand. Deep breathing is part of successful yoga poses and should be engaged through each movement where the extended foot is held for approximately 15 to 20 seconds. Repeat the process on both legs for about 10 times.
This final step should begin by bending knees slightly toward the front before dropping down and extending the top half of the body straight forward. Hold that position for about 10 seconds before leaning completely forward and grabbing the back of the ankles. Hold this position for a few more seconds and return to an upright position. Start slowly and increase the pace to a level of comfort. With all positions complete the participant should experience higher levels of energy and be anxious to face the new day.
