Bed Yoga and You!

Did you know that going through physical movements in your mind’s eye causes your muscles to fire? It’s super-good for you to start or finish your day with yoga poses in your mind, then moving into a gentle series in bed. Relaxing ... and healing!

Greeting the day by waking up slowly, mentally going through a few yoga moves, then engaging in them physically is meditative and mindful. It nurtures you—body, mind, and spirit. A gentle series of yoga moves sets a calm and positive tone at the beginning of your day, and lets you relax into a deep and peaceful sleep at the end of your day.

Whether you’ll soon be up and out in rush hour traffic, or you’re enjoying the day puttering around the house, or you’re under the weather, spending a couple days in bed, or you’re confined to bed for a longer period of time, Bed Yoga is good for you.
