Best Yoga Poses for Relaxation

Here we look at some interesting and easy yoga poses that will help you unwind and relax after a long day:

1) Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward Facing Dog)

This pose stretches your hamstrings and calves, improves blood flow to your brain and also helps relieve chronic back pain. To perform this yoga pose:

  1. Assume the table pose by placing your hands and feet on the mat. Keep your spine neutral. (Your back forms the top of the table, while hands and feet form the legs).
  2. Breathe normally. As you exhale, lift your hips up while straightening your knees and elbows. Your body will resemble an inverted V-shape at this point.
  3. Keep your hands shoulder-width apart, feet hip-width apart and parallel to each other. The toes should point straight ahead. Your ears should touch your inner arms.
  4. Hold the Adho Mukha Svanasana, and take deep, long breaths. Keep your gaze on your navel.
  5. Exhale, and bend your knees, returning to the table pose. Relax.

7) Ananda Balasana (Happy Baby Pose)

This pose will help open your hips and stretch your inner thighs, hamstrings and groin. It also helps relieve stress and fatigue, calming you down. To perform this yoga pose:

  1. Lie down on your mat with your back down, and find a neutral spine position.
  2. Pull your knees toward your chest, raising your legs but keeping your hips down. Your tailbone should be on the mat.
  3. The soles of your feet should be facing the ceiling.
  4. Wrap your two index fingers around your big toes, and pull down lightly. That will release your hips, allowing your knees to come closer to your chest as you relax.
  5. Take your time to relax, and breathe deeply. Enjoy the stretch in your hamstrings.
  6. Allow your back to relax on the floor. Just be a happy baby.
