Following on from week 4 where we focussed on restoring energy generally throughout the body, this week focusses on poses to help improve your mental energy and clarity. If you wake up feeling drowsy or 'foggy' and find yourself reaching for a coffee before you can do anything else, try these yoga poses instead as a natural way to boost your mental energy.
We're all super busy first thing in the morning, so I've narrowed it down to 3 key poses this week so that it's doable for anyone.
While this pose might seem scary if you've never tried it before, there are plenty of variations you can do.
Hold for 30 seconds - 1 minute.
This pose helps to reduce brain fog by getting you to focus on your balance above anything else.
Hold for 1 minute, then repeat on the other leg.
This is another great pose to increase blood flow to the brain, just like we did with the headstand.
Hold for 30 seconds, gently come down and then go again for another 30 seconds.
