I love Yoga!

And, no, I don’t stand on my head or balance on one arm.  I like “gentle” yoga.

A few reasons why I like yoga – especially in the mornings:

            • it stretches and activates my body – removes stiffness from during the night.
            • it gets the “chi” (or whatever it is?) flowing
            • it quiets my mind – this can be especially helpful in the morning when my tendency is to run through my to-do list in my head.

I do very much enjoy going to my local Yoga Studio (shout-out to Yoga in the Pines!) – but they don’t always have classes going when I’m ready for them.
So, “the YouTubes” always provide me with some great Yoga sequences to do!

I’ll update this list as I find more I enjoy – make sure and sign up for my free newsletter and I’ll keep you updated.

Here are my favorite Gentle Yoga Sequences for Self-Care:

Gentle Morning Yoga with Adriene

30 minutes
I like that this is slow moving and gentle – that’s what I need early in the morning!

There’s nothing too funky in this one – I mean, no poses that make me fall over!  But seriously, you just do what you can – it’s not supposed to hurt so don’t push it – especially first thing in the morning.

I like Adrienne’s voice and attitude.  She’s calm, soothing and just a little silly….  ie. the “drunk cat cow”.

And by the way… this video would be great to do anytime of day!

Adrienne has tons of great yoga videos online – check out the Yoga with Adriene YouTube Channel here.

15 Minute Gentle Morning Yoga with Candace

This is another nice calm yoga video for morning.

I like the hip openers in this one a lot.

Candace has a bunch of great yoga videos online – check out the Yoga by Candace YouTube Channel Here.

I hope you enjoyed the videos.
