Hi all,

My Sunday comes with relaxing and I have decided to chills with my lovely daughter. Instead of that i have found some interesting article it’s related to stress and for Healthy mind. “How to relieve from stress and get healthy mind.” . Yoga Postures will help to relieve from both. When i was doing Art of living course  and in that yoga course they teaches us how to do yoga and all postures.

Yoga is a mind-body practice that combines physical poses, controlled breathing, and meditation or relaxation. Yoga may help reduce stress, lower blood pressure and lower your heart rate. And almost anyone can do it. Our hectic lifestyles that we lead, you may not always find the time to workout regularly, even though you must try and spare a few minutes for it everyday. But here are some simple yoga exercises that you could do while in office or at home to ease the mind and feel relaxed. They are simple to follow and require no supervision. Here are yoga postures for a healthy mind and stress buster :

1)       Anjali Mudra :

Anjali-Mudra

Similar to our ‘namaste’, sit cross-legged on the floor and bring your palms together with the fingers stretching out to the centre of your chest (heart chakra). This represents the harmony of the two sides (right and left). Now close your eyes and slowly inhale, hold your breath for a few minutes, and then exhale. Continue this pattern for a few minutes.

2)      Balasana :

Balasana

Also known as the ‘child’s pose’, it stretches and relaxes the neck, back and the lower spine. Sit on your knees with your hands on the sides (inhale), and then slowly lower your head to touch the floor when you feel your back and hands stretching (exhale). Bring yourself back to your knees (inhale) and continue the process for a couple of minutes.

3)    Uttanasana  :

This forward bending pose may seem difficult for those who lack flexibility but with repeated practice, you will get better at it. It is a great stretching exercise for the spine and therefore helps in releasing tension. Stand straight with the feet a little apart and inhale.

Slowly bend forward to bring your head closer to your knees while stretching your hands out to touch your feet. You will feel an intense stretch on your hamstring and back. You could bend your knees a little if you like. Let your neck, head and hands hang loose and relax. You can take a few short breaths while you hold the pose, and then bring yourself back up to your feet with your back straight as you exhale.

4)    Uttana Shishosana : 

Uttana Shishosana

Popularly known as the ‘extended puppy pose’, this inversion pose can help you release tension in your shoulders. Bring yourself onto all fours by keeping your shoulders above your wrists and your hips above your knees. Move your hands forward a few inches and curl your toes under. Inhale.

5)  Savasana : 

Savasana

Referred to asthe ‘corpse pose’, it may seem extremely easy but is considered to be one of the toughest asanas to get right. This is the ultimate form of relaxation as it brings the nervous system to a complete rest before getting back to the daily functions. Lie down on your back with your eyes closed, arms by your sides, palms facing up and legs stretched out. Let your ankles fall outward. Then slowly start inhaling and exhaling as you melt deeper into the floor with each breath. Stay in this pose for a minimum of 5 minutes.

I hope you all like article and let’s start your day with these simple steps.  Keep healthy and Live healthy Enjoy!!!!!
