Not feeling up for a full vinyasa flow after throwing back a few too many drinks during last night's festivities? We feel you. Sure, lounging around with Gatorade in hand while watching an endless Netflix marathon seems ideal, but simply moving your body will make you feel so much better—we promise!
Fortunately, we have the perfect solution for those mornings when the mere thought of being in downward dog makes you want to throw up. This 15-minute Yin-inspired yoga sequence is doable for all levels and will leave you rested and refreshed, without putting undue stress on your body—or exasperating that throbbing headache.
These easy yoga moves will stretch the hamstrings, hips, and low back. This is exactly the type of yoga we do when we're stressed, overworked, or overtired. When you do a highly restorative yoga practice like this, it actually stimulates the body's relaxation response, allowing us to heal and recover more quickly. (Yes, even faster than Gatorade!)
Note: You'll need a strap, belt, or rolled up towel to do this sequence. But don't let that deter you. This sequence is so restful and having that extra prop makes it even more so.
