3 Yoga Poses That Fight Fatigue
Yoga is an aerobic exercise that offers an alternative to high-intensity workouts without all the sweat, and post-workout fatigue.
If you are like many people, you simply don’t have the energy to do a workout like that at the end of the day. Yoga is a mind body exercise that works as an alternative to other aerobic exercises, for an energy boost that lasts till bedtime. Here are three poses you can do, even as a beginner to increase energy levels and fight fatigue.
Yoga Pose #1 – Camel Pose – Ustrasana
Camel pose is essentially a modified backbend that stretches the entire front of the body. Performed on the knees, this energizing yoga posture is easy to do, even for beginners. As it opens the heart, the gentle stretch of the camel pose allows you to reach back towards your heels allowing the breath to invigorate your entire body. This pose is especially helpful for reducing neck and back pain caused by sedentary lifestyles.
Yoga Pose #2 – Chair Pose – Utkatasana
A powerful pose performed standing with feet apart and bending down as if sitting in a chair, and arms raised up over the ears, this pose creates a bolt of energy in the body that you can feel through the muscles of the legs, and spine. Often used as a transitional yoga pose, Utkatasana can be practiced on its own to boost strength and stamina.
Yoga Pose #3 – Bridge Pose – Setu Bandha Sarvangasana
This beginning backbend yoga pose is performed lying on your back with knees bent and feet flat on the floor with hands by your side. Creating a bridge with your body, this pose can help to unlock energy within the spine and nervous system in just five breaths. Especially helpful to reduce stress, fatigue and anxiety, this pose also helps to increase blood flow to the brain as it’s considered a mild inversion.
Do not perform yoga poses without the supervision of a professional instructor. And always listen to your body, work within your own personal abilities and range of limits to avoid injury.
