For Improved Balance, Posture, Flexibility & Strength
Try This: Tree Pose
Start by standing straight with your arms straight along either side of your body.
Find something in the room to focus on.
Shift your weight and balance on one foot.
Align the sole of your foot to the inside of the opposite thigh or calf (but never the knee). Your toes should be pointing down.
Press your palms together at chest level and slowly stretch them above your head, towards the ceiling, palms still together.
Hold for a few breaths and repeat with the other foot.
For Better Blood Circulation & Heart Health
Try This: Downward Dog Pose
Begin in tabletop position, which is to say, on your hands and knees.
Spread your palms wide and place your knees at hip distance.
Walk your palms just in front of your shoulders.
Tuck your toes under and raise your knees off the mat while bringing your sitting bones up to create a triangle shape.
Maintain a slight bend in your knees whilst lengthening your spine. Do not lock your knees.
You may pedal out your feet (slowly) to warm up your leg muscles if you wish.
Hold the position and breathe.
For a Better Mood
Try This: Triangle Pose
Start by standing and lightly jump your feet wide apart.
Turn your right foot out and face that direction.
Slightly bend your right leg and extend your arms, palm facing down, to create a “T” shape.
Straighten your right leg and reach your torso over your left leg. Rotate your right palm so it faces up and gaze at it.
Reach your right hand to the mat and place your palm next to your foot.
Extend your left arm overhead and gaze at your fingers which point to the ceiling.
Hold for a few breaths and repeat on the other side.
For a Good Night’s Rest
Try This: Child’s Pose
Kneel on the floor with your toes together and your knees hip-width apart.
Sink your hips back towards your heels.
Relax your chest and allow it to sink between your knees.
Extend your arms, with your palm facing down, alongside your torso—your fingers should point in the opposite direction of your toes.
Lower your head to the mat and relax your shoulders.
Hold, rest and breathe for as long as you need.
For Better Stress & Anxiety Management

Simply lie down on your back and gently stretch your limbs out, away from your body, palms facing up.
Align your head, neck and spine.
Focus on your breathing and letting go of tension, limb by limb.
Let yourself feel heavy.
Stay in this position for as long as you may need.
