Mild Yoga for the Holidays

It's very tempting to go to sleep over Christmas – stay on the sofa with a cup of tea and a good movie.

While Christmas should only mean relaxation, you always feel good during the holidays if you stay active.

I met our wonderful yoga teacher here at Pai headquarters who shared some brilliant, gentle yoga moves to keep you active during the holidays and to feel great!

Gentle twists are brilliant for this time of year because they improve digestion, detoxification and stress relief.

When you turn, you compress your digestive organs and reduce blood flow. When you let go of a twist, fresh, oxygenated blood flows into your digestive organs – this helps flush out toxins, detoxify them and keep things moving.

I would recommend the following yoga flow at any time of the day – but try not to do this immediately after eating.

To warm up …

– Start with 1-5 sun salutations as below. You can also add a little twist to the top of each lunge.

<p> Each of the following movements is ideal for grounding, gentle stretching and twisting. Feel free to mix them and add a few more sun greetings between the poses </p>
<p> Always breathe in to make room for twists and exhale to deepen the twist. When you initially turn, you should always exhale. </p>
<p> – Parivritta Parsvokonasana (rotated extended side angle posture) on both sides and five breaths on both sides. </p>
<p> – Marichyasana C (sage pose), either the extended leg version or the bent knee version, is great. Be sure to look far over your shoulder to deepen the twist. </p>
<p> – Threading the needle is a nice pose to open the back of the shoulder and gently twist the spine. Hold three breaths on both sides. </p>
<p> – Supine Twist is a great release for the back. You can make it more active by switching sides in time with your breathing (i.e. inhaling the center, exhaling the twist, etc.) or staying on each side as long as you like! </p>
