12-Minute Yoga Practice

Make every day a Yoga day.

I like many people love to do Yoga. However life’s busy schedule doesn’t always allow for a daily 60-90 minute practice unless you make time.

One morning with minimal time to spare, I preformed a 12-minute asana practice. Not only did I feel fully stretched, I was amazed at how much energy and clarity I had throughout the day.

I also found that my body/spirit always knew the perfect asanas for my day ahead. Whenever I had a big presentation and needed to feel confident, my body would request power poses. If I needed an open mind for an important decision, I would get a sense to do flexibility asanas. The days that I needed to juggle business, home and family, balance poses presented themselves.

So, may this 12-Minute Yoga Practice become part of your daily ritual, and Yoga transition into who you “are” not just something you “do”.
