3-Minute Morning Yoga

1. Start in bed, right after you wake. Baddha Konasana is one of my favorites. It helps to open the hips & stretch out all the muscles that we often forget. Bring the bottoms of your feet together & allow your knees to fall out to either side. Back straight, breath slow, you can gently press down on your knees with your palms, or wrap your fingers around your toes, and close your eyes. Stay here for 30 seconds to a minute. 2. Now, rest first on your knees, then sitting to the right side of your heels. Grab hold of your left shin and gently cross your left leg over the top of the right so that your knees are stacked. Your left foot will be by your right hip, and the right foot near the left hip. Rest here for a moment with a straight spine. 3. When you’re ready, switch sides. Sit over to the left side of your heels, and cross your right leg over the left. Untwist yourself and stretch your legs out in front of you. Inhale here, noticing the release of the muscles in your ankles, thighs, and hips. Reach your arms up overhead, straighten your back, and lean forward, reaching first for your knees, then your shins, and maybe even your toes. If it’s available to you, wrap your pointer finger around each big toe. Rest here for 30 seconds to a minute. 4. From here, I like to bring my right heel in near my pelvis and extend the left leg out to the side. I reach up, straighten my spine, and twist my torso over to the right before gently stretching over to reach my left toes. It’s a beautiful way to both stretch & twist the spine and muscles in the back. Stay here for as long as you’d like before switching over to the right side. 5. To end your practice, no matter how long, we bring our palms together & press the inside edges of both to our heart. Breathe in, and out. Savor this moment. Let it melt on your tongue. Then, move forward.
