Working-from-home was a scourge for road-trippers and travellers who could appreciate the spectacular scenery of abbeys in the North or offbeat beaches in the South, given the convenient working performance space, and now that travel bans and security measures have been loosened, travel hobbyists can’t wait to take their DSLR and vagabond ethos to dazzling destinations. Though travelling is an exhilarating experience that requires one to leave their comfort zone and embark on an exploratory mission to discover new places, cultures, food, and people, make sure you do it while ticking off workouts on a daily basis. So, here are 5 Yoga asanas that will help road trippers and travellers relax at any time and in any location.
Tadasana is a deep breathing exercise that strengthens and expands the lungs, may increase height, develops and activates the entire body’s nerves, and strengthens the vertebral column and heart. It also helps to regulate the menstrual cycle in women, cures indigestion problems in all practitioners, strengthens the arms and legs, aids in the removal of lethargy from the body, and reduces the problem of flat feet.
Padahastasana is a Yoga pose that is known to massage the digestive organs, help with nasal and throat diseases, relieve flatulence, constipation, and indigestion, improve concentration and metabolism, stimulate and tone spinal nerves, and boost vitality.
Baddha Konasana or Cobbler Pose or the bound angle pose
When done until late in pregnancy, this helps relieve mild depression, anxiety, and fatigue while also facilitating a smooth delivery by stretching the thighs and knees and relieving pain. It also increases flexibility in the hip and groyne area.
Chakrasana allows the spine to be very flexible. Only do this if your stomach and bowels are empty. Not only does it strengthen the buttocks, abdomen, vertebral column, human back, wrist, leg, and arm, but it also sharpens the eyesight and reduces stress and tension in the body. This exercise is especially beneficial for asthma patients because it expands the chest and allows more oxygen into the lungs.
Shavasana, when combined with deep breathing, relaxes the nervous system more than any other Yoga asana and immediately lowers body temperature. It relieves stress, repairs cells, relaxes the body, and aids in self-healing in pregnant women without the use of pills.
