We’ll be posting a new challenge every day leading up to summer! Follow along here on the blog, or using this calendar.
Today we’ve asked guest-author Jenny Blake to share tips on introducing yoga to your life. So today’s challenge is a quick one: Take 5 minutes to do these 5 simple moves.
When it comes to yoga, you’ve heard about the countless benefits: improved circulation, strength and flexibility, reduced stress, improved mood, the list goes on! You’ve seen the droves of Lululemon-wearing, mat-toting women looking fit and radiant. You’re feeling stiff and a bit creaky, and yet something is keeping you from actually taking class (or at least as frequently as you’d like).
You might even be plagued by any of the following excuses:
- I’m not flexible
- I don’t have time
- I have no interest in hippy-dippy granola practices
If that’s the case, have no fear! Today we’re sharing five incredibly simple moves that can be done right from the comfort of your desk, each in 60-seconds or less.
Money-back guarantee: if you try all five and DON’T feel at least a little bit (if not a whole lot) better afterward, you have my permission for a get-out-jail-free card for all future yoga classes.*
*Caveat: I do recommend beginners
suffer through stick with at least 5-10 classes before declaring it’s not for them—even the veterans among us feel bored, antsy, annoyed and impatient from time-to-time! Focus on how you feel afterward, and the subtle changes it initiates within your body and mind.
