Spring Yoga Poses to Get Us in the Mindset

BY: SUZ RUBIN

Spring Yoga!

SUN

Lunge forward with one leg extended on the ground behind you and the other at a 90-degree angle to the floor, reach your arms up over your head and look up to the sky .

TREE

Stand on one leg, bend the other leg and place your foot on the inside of your standing leg. Hold your hands in front of your chest and sway like a tree in the spring breeze.

BIRD

Balance on one leg and bend over with the other leg extended out behind you. Using your arms out at your sides to maintain balance. Feel free to flap your wings like you're a bird

RAIN

Put your feet together or a little apart and keeping your legs straight lean over towards your toes and hang your arms like the falling rain. You look a lil like a monkey, but it's good.

FLOWER

Sit on your butt with your back straight, knees bent, and your toes slightly above the floor. Touch the soles of your feet together, and weave your arms under your legs. (Aka pretzel.)

BUTTERFLY

Sit down and put the soles of your feet together keeping a straight back. Close your eyes and relax.

CHILD'S POSE

All around favorite pose for any season :)  

Start on your hands and knees. Separate your knees to about shoulder width. Lean forward collapsing onto your knees and stretch your arms behind you. Rest your forehead on the ground in front of your knees and rest.
