Camel Pose (bend your back and touch your ankles) – for those women who spend hours sitting behind a desk and on a laptop.
The camel pose is excellent for strengthening the spine, opening the chest and toning the thighs. It is a great pose to move the spine in the opposite direction, therefore giving you better posture in everyday life. And it helps relieve tired backs and spines. Only attempt the pose if you know your back is strong enough or if you know the technicalities of the pose.
Plank Pose (like a “pushed up” of a standard push up)
Plank is a simple but challenging way to build upper body strength—using only your body weight, it works all of the major muscles in your arms, back, and core. Its a compact fitness routine for the busy woman
Stand with your legs and feet together, hands on hips. Transfer your weight to your left foot as you bend your right knee and place the sole of your right foot on the inside of your left leg (beginners start at the ankle; more advanced – raise your right foot to the inside of your left thigh. Do not rest your foot on your knee). Gently press your right foot against your left leg. Bring your palms together in front of your heart in prayer pose. On days when your mind feels scattered, practicing this pose will help center you.
Kneel on the floor with big toes touching and knees about hip-width apart. Sit on your heels. Lay your torso between the thighs and bring your forehead to the mat. Extend arms straight in front of you, palms on the floor. Close your eyes and breathe deeply. Stay here for at least one minute.
This go-to rest pose opens hips and relieves low back tightness – but more importantly, it doesn’t just relax your body, also your mind. Good to focus – and extremely good for some good sex thereafter! Child’s pose is very soothing and can really tune the mind to the body
