THREE POSES TO HELP YOU RELEASE TENSION

Yoga doesn’t have to be complex. Here’s Inspiratrix Yoga teacher Mel’s top three poses. Skip anything that doesn’t feel comfortable for you today.

1. DOWNWARD DOG (pictured)

  • kneel on your hands and knees
  • tuck your toes under, then lift your knees up off the floor
  • stretch your hips up and back to make an upside down V-shape

2. RAGDOLL (standing forward bend)

  • stand with your feet hip distance apart and parallel
  • hinge forward from your hips and relax your upper body downwards
  • either let your arms hang down, or catch each hand onto the opposite elbow

3. CAT COW

  • kneel on your hands and knees
  • as you inhale, arch your spine, pointing your tailbone up, relaxing the belly and midback downwards, and lifting the chin a little as you exhale, round your spine, pointing your tailbone down, pushing your midback up, relaxing your head forwards
  • repeat 5-10 times, moving with your breath
