Floor Yoga Poses For All Lazy Bees We Have

You can do it right after waking up or anytime in the day. Before doing these yoga poses, warm up your body by twisting your neck, wrist, and ankles.

1. Sleeping Swan

This one is done to open up your hips as many people carry stress and repressed emotions in this area of the body. It is also known as ‘pigeon yoga.’

Bend one knee to the front with the lower leg perpendicular to the body. Stretch the opposite leg at the back. Let your upper body remain upright with a mild backend or drape over your forward leg as opening those hips.

2. Child’s Pose

As the name suggests, you have to make your body rest in a recommended posture. First, sit at your heels and with wide spread knees (as wide as possible). Extend your arms, and let your forehead fall on your mattress. 

This pose is beneficial for the ones who suffer persistent backaches. It stretches your spine, thighs, ankles, and hips. Moreover, it relaxes your whole body and releases your stress. Last but not the least, it improves your mood.

3. Single-Leg Forward Fold

It offers a great stretch to your back legs, from the glutes to the hamstrings. Then, it stretches your calves and the side body – from the armpits to the ribcage to your hips. It then stimulates good digestion as it massages internal organs with concentrated breath. 

Stretch your one leg forward while crossing the other leg. Let your arms stretch and reach your stretched leg (keeping your back straight). Stretch both sides as long as you can. (at least 30-40 seconds). Perform this yoga pose 5 times a day.

Sit down on your knees and place your palms in front of you. Get on all fours. First, inhale, curve your spine and then, look up. Stay in this position for 1-2 seconds. Now, exhale, curve your spine and form an arch. Further, look downwards while focusing on the gaze on your chest. 

This entire process from inhale to exhale completes one cycle. Perform 5-10 reps of this pose daily for better mental health and good stretching of back and neck muscles. 

7. Supine Single-leg Stretch

This yoga pose is really good for thigh toning. Also, it stabilizes abdominal muscles, helps in building torso strength, stabilizes the spine, and improves blood circulation.
