Although this time of year can get quite stressful, it’s important to take time aside for yourself and your health. Whether this is taking the time to cook a healthful meal, or taking a mental break and reading a quiet book alone, the body needs time to rest and recharge after a lot of activity. A great way to take a quick break to re-energize your mind and body, is to schedule a yoga session to force your brain to take a much needed vacation from all of the holiday hustle and bustle.

Whether you have just 10 minutes before bed or a longer chunk of time in the afternoon, check out some of our favorite yoga flows and videos to help get you started!


 

10-Minutes

10 minutes might not seem like a lot of time, but it’s enough to knock-out this simple yoga flow for self-care! Better than a nap!

20-Minutes

If you have a bit more time, consider a 20-minute yoga flow. Put on some calming music, light some candles, and go for it. Just because you’re stretched for time, it doesn’t mean you can’t treat yourself! Who needs a yoga studio when you can test out some poses in your own home for free?  After a few sessions you’re sure to have these moves down!

60-Minutes

If you are running on fumes, think about taking just 1 hour out of your day to recharge and relax. Remember, creating a calming atmosphere is just as important as the yoga itself! Find some relaxing music and a quiet room, or even consider using earbuds if quiet spaces are hard to come by this holiday.


 

For Kiddos

Don’t forget the kids! Kids can have fun with yoga too! It helps them connect with their bodies and teaches them the importance of self-care and physical activity. There are so many great resources online for kid-friendly yoga, but check out this holiday-themed video just in time for Santa’s visit!
