A Yoga Practice for Joy
Every day we have the power to make choices that are empowering and help us feel our best. We can’t always control how we feel when we wake up in the morning, but we can control how we choose to move throughout the rest of our day. Joy may not always come easy, but it is a feeling that can be cultivated daily with the right practices. Yoga allows us to shift stagnant energy and become more present in the moment, creating space for more joy in our day. Practice this meditation and yoga sequence when you want to shift your energy and lift your spirits.

7 Quick Practices to Refresh and Reset at Work

Out of all the environments we explore on a weekly basis, we show up to our workspaces perhaps most frequently. That might be a home office as the shift to virtual workspaces has been abundant in the past few years, or you might be transitioning back to an office or in-person setting. Whatever your workspace looks like, often when you arrive there it’s assumed that the only thing we can do is our work function. Which means that self-care sits on the back burner as we prioritize our production.

A Yoga Practice to Clear Your Mind and Boost Your Energy

In Ayurveda, springtime is considered Kapha season. Kapha is the dosha governed by water and earth elements and has qualities of lethargy, heaviness, and stagnation when imbalanced. Seasonal transitions can be taxing on our bodies, and the onset of springtime can leave us feeling heavy, fatigued, and uninspired. It is essential that we balance these feelings by incorporating more heating and invigorating ways of movement and rituals. This sequence was designed to clear any stagnation from the mind and invigorate the body. Enjoy this practice when you need an energetic boost or reset.

Yoga Is Better Than Caffeine: 5 Yoga Exercises for Energy

Caffeine might be your favorite way to start the day, but too much can lead to sleepless nights, anxiety, anger, and a case of the jitters. One of my mantras is “no coffee no prana!” However, I have to limit my intake of caffeine because my dominant dosha is Vata. Through yoga and meditation, I’ve become more aware of my body’s reaction to caffeine. I can still enjoy my morning Americano, but I can’t have more than that. When I need an energy boost without the negative side effects, I turn to specific pranayama and asanas. The next time you’re tempted to pour that second or third cup of coffee, try these exercises, in order, instead.
