Yoga to Go

We asked Amy Elers of New York City's Pure Yoga to create a sequence of yoga poses just for LHJ readers. This restorative workout will challenge your muscles, increase flexibility, and help relieve stress -- it's like a private class with a top NYC pro! Before you begin, Amy recommends focusing your mind. "Set an intention to release any thought that is no longer serving you," she says. Let go of the stress, the worries, and the to-do list, and simply breathe as you move from one pose to the next. Tip: Hold each pose for 3-5 breaths. Always use a yoga mat on the floor for cushioning --they're available at nearly any sporting good or mass retail store.

Downward Facing Dog

Downward Facing Dog

Great for stretching Achilles tendons, calves, and hamstrings. Helps increase blood flow to the head and heart.
Begin on all fours with hands slightly in front of shoulders, fingers spread. Tuck toes under and press hips up toward the ceiling, keeping your hands flat on the ground while attempting to straighten your legs and touch heels to the floor. For correct alignment, bring ribs toward thighs to straighten your back.
