7 Yoga Poses for Relaxation

Each day we work hard and train hard. We meet important deadlines and training milestones, while still making time for significant others, friends, family and our personal hobbies. It can be stressful and exhausting, exciting and energizing. 

During the hubbub of life, we need a moment to relax—to calm down and breath. We don’t always get that chance, but when we do, it’s the perfect time for some yoga. 

These seven postures are the perfect prescription for when you need to relax and unwind from your day. There is nothing especially complicated about them. What’s most important is the feel of your breath. Breathing is an essential component to any yoga practice as it allows us to slow down, move mindfully and learn to become more present.
