Standing Yoga Stretch This is a fun stretch that can be done almost anywhere. ¬†Stand up and give yourself an arm‚Äôs length on either side of you. ¬†Begin by rolling your shoulders forward 6 times, and then backwards 6 times. ¬†Next, let your head drop forward, and then to the right, to the back, and to the left. ¬†Then, repeat 2 more times. The Half Moon Series Intertwine your fingers, and stretch your arms towards the ceiling as you inhale. ¬†Exhale as you stretch to your right, Inhale up, exhale to the left, Inhale up, exhale stretch to the back (tighten your butt), inhale again as you stretch up, and then exhale , bending forward and¬† stretching your fingertips towards your toes. Standing Spinal Twist As you come up, bring your arms straight out to the side at shoulder level, palms down. Keeping your arms at shoulder level, bring your right arm around to the front, and the left arm to the back. While keeping both arms outstretched… look at your hand in front of you for 5 seconds and then look at your hand behind you for 5 seconds. Then move your arms into the opposite position with your left arm to the front and your right to the back. Repeat the process of gazing at each hand.¬† Repeat 6 shoulder rolls, forward and back, neck stretches in 4 positions, three times, and then the Half Moon series again, followed by the standing spinal twist. ¬†Repeat a third time, and you have¬†completed¬†your 5-minute Yoga that can be done whenever you have 5 minutes.
