In today’s hectic pace I try my best to incorporate a healthy lifestyle. This includes daily morning yoga, meditation and a balanced vegetarian diet. Below is my my daily yoga routine.
Note that this is what I do almost daily on a weekdays when I am rushed.
On Saturday and Sunday it is a a much more exhaustive routine.
- Veerasana (Hero Pose)
Vajrasana is one of the easiest yoga asanas to perform. Kneel down, stretching your lower legs backward and keeping them together. Your big toes should cross each other. Once you are ready, gently lower your body such that your buttocks are resting on your heels and your thighs on your calf muscles. Place your hands on your knees, and set your gaze forward with your head absolutely straight. Breathe gently for as long as you can without any discomfort.
This asana stimulates the vajra nadi which facilitates digestion. It helps relieve constipation & strengthens lower back, legs and thighs.
Kneel on the floor. Make sure your knees are placed directly under your hips. Let your hands rest on your knees. Bring your knees closer to each other so that the gap between your feet automatically widens. It should be wider than the width of your hips. Gently lower your hips, such that your find yourself sitting on the mat. Roll the calves away. Ensure your hips are right between your heels.
Use a pillow or yoga block to rest on if you are not able to sit comfortably on your own.
