I’ll be the first to admit that it’s not always easy to fit in a workout during the week. Between jobs, school, meetings, doctor’s appointments, taking care of your pets and family, running errands, and cooking dinner, exercise doesn’t always make the cut. Then when the weekend rolls around, you make up for not exercising by going all out on Saturday or Sunday.
Yoga is a great way to boost the energy of those weekend warriors who wear themselves out between Friday night and Monday morning. Specific postures can stabilize your spine, soothe tight hamstrings, open the hips and prevent injuries you might incur doing your favorite weekend activities. These five poses target the total body and help lubricate the shoulder and knee joints and strengthening your back.
