Every time my cat wakes up, it engages in a quick stretching routine (cat pose followed by a dog looking down, if you should know) before migrating to a new sleeping location. There’s a lesson here, right? Waking up is hard to do, but a quick stream of yoga can help you activate whatever your day has in store — even if no have the luxury of sleeping again.
In this week’s episode Trainer of the Month Club, the yoga instructor and the Mirror Pilin Anice instructor guide you to a beginner yoga mobility flow designed to wake up your body. “Today’s practice will increase circulation and enhance spinal mobility, so let’s get into that flow with lots of twists,” he says at the top of the video.
Yoga twists are good for your body for many reasons: They rejuvenate your spine, help you maintain a full range of motion in your back and reduce the tension you feel from the bow over your computer all day, every day . It is also worth mentioning that they feel incredibleespecially the kind ones Anice serves in this stream.
In this lesson, you will move delicious poses such as swivel chair pose (Parivrtta Utkatasana in Sanskrit), swivel lunge (Parivrtta Anjaneyasana) and spine rotation (Jathara Parivartanasana), as well as many forward and forward for the next day.
At the end of Anice’s lesson, you will feel like you have been given a brand new back. Or – okay, okay – you will at least feel like you have a yoga class the equivalent of a giant cup of coffee.
So do the grace for your future spine: Grab the leggings, the yoga mat and the bottle of water. Then queue up for Anice’s video and watch it for yourself.
