Taking 5 minutes to go through some modified Sun Salutations (including forward folds, downward dog and plank) can regulate your breathing, calm your nervous system, and redistribute the blood flow throughout your body. This one might require getting a bit creative depending on your location, but it can always be done! For example, you can grab a conference room at work, do a modified version at your desk, or even do some standing postures in the bathroom - whatever is necessary!

What You'll Need

  • Yoga Mat or Soft Surface

What You'll Do

  • Start by standing upright with your neck long and your shoulders relaxed. Reach your arms upwards, lift your chest and look towards the ceiling. Take a deep breath in and on your exhale fold over your legs into a forward fold.
  • Plant your hands on the ground and step back into a plank position, taking three deep breaths through your nose here. Then lift your hips up and back into downward facing dog. Reach your heels down towards the mat and straighten your arms and legs.
  • Take 5 breaths in downward dog, then walk your hands back to your feet. Slowly rise to stand and repeat!

Tips & Warnings

  • ***Add some side stretching with your arms overhead and some twists if you have to be seated at your desk!
