Try out simplified, #WellnessFromHome asanas by Kaya Kalp well-being master Dr. Mamtha Ismail and give yourself a fitness boost, right from the safety and comfort of your home.
The Navasana Boat Pose is a compact position that requires you to move your entire body into your center.
Make sure that your spine supports your torso. Your shoulder blades must move downwards as you push your chest out while breathing in. Remember to hold this position while keeping your limbs firmly in place for about 10 – 20 seconds.
The Utkata Konasana Goddess Pose is a simplistic, squat-like position. Easy to perform and particularly of help to those who need additional exercise for their lower back and thighs. Simply place your feet wide apart and lower your body in a way where your thighs are positioned parallel to the ground. Make sure you’re taking deep breaths while you rise back up.
The Natarajana Dancer Pose is the perfect asana to help improve your mental and bodily balance. Relieve yourself from work stress and give your body a healthy break. Lift your heel and bend it towards your back. You may extend your opposite side arm or use both to hold your heel from above. Remember to keep your breathing deep and even. Hold for 10 – 20 seconds and repeat with the other leg.
Perfect to counter the effects of prolonged desk work and screen time. The Vrikshasana Tree Pose improves your posture, steadies your mind, and gives your back muscles a much-needed stretch. Bring up your heel and extend your arm above in half ‘Namaste’ Mudra. Remember to exhale slowly as you bring your limbs back down.
A challenging pose for most beginners, but the simplified version displayed here is well worth the benefits. Try stretching your arms outwards, mimicking the wings of an airplane for an extended stretch. You’ll find yourself energized with a better posture while you work.
