7 Yoga Poses You Must Try At Home!

Do you work from home or at a desk all day? Do you have poor posture or find you are inflexible? 

Whilst we are in lockdown or working from home, there are amazing yoga poses that we can do for our spinal and hip flexibility that will overall help our posture. 

Take a look below at these 7 yoga poses that you can do at home to increase your mobility, flexibility, and improve your posture!

Standing Forward Fold
  • Standing Forward Fold (Uttanasana): Standing Forward Bend is top of the list of yoga poses for flexibility for lumbar spine and hamstrings.

Warrior I
  • Warrior I: The action of the pose builds both strength and a better range of motion within your core muscles. Warrior I is also ideal for developing flexibility in the hips

Cat-Cow

  • Cat-Cow Pose: Cat-Cow Pose is another important stretch for gaining flexibility in your spine
  • Cobra Pose

  • Cobra Pose: You get a deep stretch in your back which really helps to strengthen and loosen up your spinal column.
  • Bridge Pose

  • Bridge Pose: Many fitness experts recommend Bridge Pose becoming part of your yoga routine for flexibility, especially if you’re trying to find poses to help with back pain.
  • Butterfly Pose

  • Butterfly Pose: Butterfly Pose creates flexibility in the groin and hip region, and helps your body enjoy a deep stretch.
  • King Dancer Pose (Natarajasana): Natarajasana is a deep stretch for your whole body, and helps to build suppleness not only in your spine but also in your shoulders and hamstrings. This one can be a slight challenge! Feel free to use a chair or the wall for balance! Or if it’s too difficult it’s okay to leave this one out!
  • Natarajasna
  • I would recommend watching some YouTube videos on some of the poses if you are unsure of how to get into them. Start off nice and easy and just listen to your body. Certain poses such as Standing Forward Fold will require you to start with bent legs until you build up your flexibility and are able to straighten your legs out. 

    Hold poses for roughly 1-3minutes and practice deep breaths throughout. 

    Good luck legends and let us know how you go!
