Yoga Morning Routine This energizing morning yoga routine can work as a natural stimulant to set you up for a productive day. This sequence combines some back bend postures that will help warm up the body and bring you from repose to refresh. Many of us sleep with the spine and hips rounded in fetal position, which is calming and introspective for rest and contemplation. In contrast, back bends, stretch and extend the spine and hips and bring an energetic openness to the body, to prepare you for action. Take just a few minutes every morning to practice this yoga routine, and youll begin each day feeling centered, wide-awake and ready for anything.
