Pause, Breathe and Stretch

Yoga with Adriene is a new channel I’ve been watching constantly and its made a huge difference in how I’ve been able to stay productive while at home. I set up a routine to do one in the morning usually the 7-10 minute videos. She posts amazing yoga videos for everything you could imagine, relief for pain in the back, for neck pain. Even before we were all staying at home all day it was wearing our bodies down to sit at a desk all day. So now please take sometime for yourself and even if you just have 5 minutes this makes a world of difference. Plus its really fun to do yoga with Adriene and her dog Benji. She has an amazing variety of videos ranging from home exercise series and really short yoga videos.
