A Morning, Noon and Night Guide to Practicing Yoga

Physical activity has been known to decrease your level of stress and increase your focus and performance.

Casey Feicht, a yoga instructor, suggests taking a few minutes before work, during work and before bed to practice yoga. She recommends the following. 

  1. Morning. Start each day by standing in Mountain Pose for a few minutes, focusing on your breath. “Stand tall with your eyes closed and focus on the present moment,” she says. “Pay attention to your posture and feel your feet connecting to the earth below you while the crown of your head reaches toward the sky.” 
     
  2. Noon. You can take a yoga break midday right in your chair. Feicht suggests starting with a seated twist. “Push back from your desk, keeping both feet flat on the ground or on a stool. Inhale, the reach arms overhead and twist in one direction. Hold and breathe for five breaths, then switch to the other side.”
     
  3. Night. “End your day with ‘legs up the wall,’” she says. “Sit with your side against the wall or a large headboard. Shift your body so that your legs stretch up the length of the wall, and gently lay your back flat on the ground.” Scoot your buttocks as close to the wall as possible, and let your arms rest at your side with palms facing up. Close your eyes and hold for five to 10 minutes, or whatever feels comfortable.
