In order to carry all your physical and mental tasks through the day in an effective and efficient manner, you need strong stamina.

But bad news is that our increasingly packed schedules, sedentary lifestyle, and unhealthy diet choices are seriously weakening our endurance.

However, the ancient Ayurvedic practice of Yoga can help.

Here are five Yoga poses to help boost your energy and stamina.

Camel pose

Camel pose

To perform this pose, sit on your knees so that your body remains straight, while your knees form a right angle.

Next, arch your spine backward and touch the heels of your feet with your hands.

Hold the position for a few seconds, then slowly return to the initial position.

Performing this pose will help give a boost to your energy levels and endurance.

Bridge pose

To perform the Setu Bandha Sarvangasana or Bridge pose, lie down on your back with your arms next to your body, and palms facing down.

Now, bend your knees and place your feet on floor.

Further, taking support of your shoulders, arms and feet, lift your back off the floor.

Keep breathing slowly and deeply.

Maintain the posture for one minute. Relax, then repeat.

Half Boat pose

Half Boat pose

Start by sitting on your yoga mat, with your legs stretched out in front of you, and palms facing the floor. Start raising your legs, up to a level, so that your knees are at 45 degrees angle and the lower part of your legs parallel to the ground.

Now, raise your arms parallel to the ground.

Hold for 30 seconds. Relax, then repeat.

Crane pose

Begin with a low-squat position, with your hands on the ground and fingers spread wide.

Now, using your tiptoes, lift your legs, and try to place your knees on the edge of your upper arms.

Slowly shift your body weight forward, then lift your toes up the ground, one leg at a time.

Hold the position for as long as possible.

Practise daily.

Child’s pose

Apart from being a great Yoga pose for relaxation, the Balasana or Child’s pose will help improve your overall energy levels and stamina.

To perform this pose, kneel on all fours, and relax your buttocks on your heels. Reach your arms out, with your head resting down on the mat/floor.

Hold the position for a few seconds. Relax, then repeat.
