5 yoga poses to stretch without getting out of bed
To perform this type of yoga you don't need to get up, unwind your mat or put on comfortable clothes. Just open your eyes just awake or lie in bed at the end of the day, and prepare to stretch your body, mobilize your energy and connect with yourself.
The practice of body stretching and morning breathing exercises will allow you to warm your body, increase your vital energy, focus your mind and raise your vibration. Starting the day in a positive way is one of the choices that will align you with the fulfillment of your goals and purposes.
Similarly, performing postures before bed will help you relax deeply and set your body and mind to a much more restful rest.
We share you five postures to practice without getting out of bed. Remember to do them with awareness and respecting your body. If it is far from the mobile and any other device that can distract you, much better!
1. COLUMN MOVEMENTS
This sequence is called "cat-cow" because it mimics the poses of these animals. Seek to support the knees at the width of your hips and the hands at the width of your shoulders. Inhale deeply while bringing your head, chest and coccyx up and dropping your belly. When exhaling, round the spine and drop the head and tail down. Repeat these movements as many times as you want to warm your entire spine.
2. POSITION OF THE CHILD
Seek to open your knees to the width of your hips, join the toes and bring the tail on your heels. Exhale all the air, relax your chest and forehead on the bed. You can stay in this posture for several minutes, inhaling and exhaling deeply. Every time you release the air, visualize that your worries dissolve.
3. SIDE STRETCHES
Extend the right leg and flex the left leg. Bring your left arm extended above your head, as if you wanted to touch your right foot. Inhale and exhale a couple of turns in this position and then do the same to the other side. Enjoy the warm-up that is generated in your body.
In this position, try to make your entire back rest well on the bed. Leave your arms at the side of your body, with the palms of your hands open and pointing upwards: a symbol of receiving divine energy. You can cross your legs, relax your shoulders and focus all your attention on your breathing.
Seek to sit cross-legged and relaxed on the bed. Make sure your spine is upright and your shoulders are relaxed. Take a few moments to observe your mind and your thoughts. Focus your attention on the present moment and on your breathing.
