Vacations are here and they can really be a vacation from your healthy routine also. If you too are on vacation and is wondering how to continue to stay healthy even when you are on traveling, we’ve got you covered. Why not give it a healthy twist with very simple Yoga asanas that you can take along your backpack without anyone noticing it.

Just find some time in the morning or in evening to get rid of that stress and tiredness. And what better environment you are going to get than the place you are visiting to revitalize yourself. So get going…

Surya Namaskar

There is nothing better than Surya Namaskar when you are starting your day at a place that you have chosen to spend your vacations at. Surya Namaskar covers your whole body in 12 poses when it comes to get healthy. Also, there is no time boundary with Surya Namaskar. When done in morning it revitalizes mind and body making you feel energetic. And when done in the evening it helps de-stress your body and release all the weariness away.

Just keep the golden rule in mind. Inhale when bending in and exhale when bending out and you are good to go, burning calories and stress together. Do at least 4 round of Surya Namaskar to make yourself super active for the adventures ahead.

Standing Cat Cow Pose (Tadasana Bitilasana Marjaryasana )

Begin with your feet hips apart. Bent your knees and place your hands on knees. Keeping your spine nice and neutral, arch your lower back forward and look up, tilting your hips up.

Then do the opposite. Create a curve in your back. Pull your hips inwards and look down at your navel.

This Yoga pose helps release stress and saves you from lower back pain. Stretching your neck, spine, and shoulders, it releases all the tension from your body.

Half dog ( Ardha Adho Mukha Svanasana)

With an arms distance, place your fingers on the wall at your hips height. Bend at 90-degree angle from the floor with legs at a normal distance and stretch. Repeat this at least 5 times. This pose helps in relieving the pain caused by continuous sitting while traveling. It opens up your shoulders, chest, and back. Stretch it up and feel all the pain flowing out of you.

Cow Face Pose ( Gomukhasana)

Relax and sit in crossed legs position and if you are comfortable stack knees. Now reach for your arms behind you. Right arm from the top of shoulders and left arm from down. Hold hands and stretch. If hands don’t touch, grab your shirt and practice both sides. This pose opens up the chest and helps with any kind of back pain. Avoid this if you have undergone any shoulder injury.

Tree Pose (Vrksasana)

Relax your body and stand firmly with one foot. Bring the other foot to the inside of the standing leg and place on the thigh. It will take time to balance so keep a wall or a chair at your reach in case you need it to balance yourself. Raise your hand up and press them upward in namaskar position. This pose stretches your leg, engages your core and opens your hips, relaxing the muscles which get rigid during long journeys.

Start tomorrow and feel the change within…
