Taking a vacation is the perfect way to relax, but, unfortunately, most people can’t be on vacation everyday. Here are three yoga moves that will help you recreate the relaxing feeling you get on vacation, even when you are in the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
1. Cross your legs then rotate the ankle of the foot raised from the ground, making small circles with the points of the feet. Rotate in a clockwise direction as you breath in, and then switch to counter clockwise when you exhale. Do this 3 to 6 times then cross your legs in the opposite direction and do the same move with the other foot.
2. With both feet placed on the floor and your back supported against a seat breathe in deeply. While inhaling slowly contract the muscles of the feet, the legs, the thighs and then the abdomen. Breathe out and relax your muscles. Repeat 3 to 6 times
3. While breathing in, consciously contract all the muscles of the body starting with the feet and working upwards. As you breathe out slowly relax everything.
