Here are the 5 yoga poses you should practice daily to begin your day.

Vrikshasna- The Tree Pose 

 

Vriksha means a tree. Stand in Tadasana. Bend the right knee and place the right heel at the root of the left thigh. Now, rest the foot on the left thigh and toes pointing downwards. Balancing on the left leg, join your palms and raise the arms straight over the head. Stay in this pose for a few seconds while breathing deeply. Then lower the arms and separate the palms, straighten the right leg and stand again in Tadasana. Repeat the pose, standing on the right leg.

 

 

The tree pose improves focus and concentration, strengthens the leg muscles and improves alignment, improves your balance and poise. This pose gives you a sense of grounding.

 

Caution: Not to be done by a person with knee and back injuries.

 

Bhujangasana- The Cobra Pose

 

Lie flat on the stomach with hands on either side of the chest next to the shoulders, inhale and lift the chest up towards the sky. Stay here and breathe, inhaling and exhaling deeply to open the chest. Exhale and lower the chest back to the ground. You can repeat the pose two or three times and then relax.

 

 

The posture is magical for an injured spine, and in the case of slight displacement of spinal discs, the practice of this pose replaces the discs in their original position. The spinal region in this pose is toned and the chest fully expanded.

 

Caution: Not to be done by a pregnant woman/ person having chronic disorders.

 

Makarasana- The Crocodile Pose

 

Lie on the ground face down, and both legs stretched out, catch the head with the arms or the face with the palms.

 

 

The crocodile pose is useful for people with back and shoulder problems. This asana can be done as a relaxation pose between other asanas or when you are tired. You can stay in this posture for a prolonged period of time if you are tired after a workout. It relaxes the spinal nerves allowing for natural realignment of the spine.

 

Adho Mukha Svanasana- Downward Facing Dog Pose 

 

Start on all fours, lower your head push with your hands, straightening the legs and slowly raise the hips and bring your body into an inverted V. Hold for 3 full breaths.
