I love yoga. It’s great for the mind and especially the body.
Whether you practice yoga or prefer stretching to loosen your tight muscles, these 10 yoga poses are great individually or as a quick routine for your hips and legs, adapted from the barefoot running book and good even for barefoot runners! For a routine, complete the poses in sequence, holding each pose for at least 3-5 breaths.
1. Standing side stretch (left and right)
2. Star into Triangle Pose
3. Low lunge
4. Crescent lunge
5. Prayer twist
6. Runner’s lunge
7. Downward-facing Dog
8. Pigeon pose
9. Head to Knee (or as close as you can)
10. Downward-facing Dog
What’s your favorite pose?
