Yoga Instructors Recommend These Stretches to Help You Wake Up and Get Energized Every Morning

Maggie Ryan

We're down for yoga at any time of day, but there's something about a morning flow that just feels so good. If you wake up stressed and anxious, it can calm you down for the day; if you're groggy and unmotivated, it gets your blood moving and helps you focus. If your mornings look anything like mine, though, you might not have time for a full flow, which is why I asked yoga instructors what their one favorite yoga pose is for waking up and stretching out in the morning. Whether you're prepping for a workout or stretching out before work, slide into a couple of these poses tomorrow morning to get energized for your day.
