Winters have finally knocked on our doors and entered the comfort of our home. It’s finally that time of the year when sleeping & snuggling under our blankets is the only activity we look up to. But what about keeping yourself active? It becomes necessary to keep ourselves going on a long wintry day so that we don’t become couch potatoes. Blood circulation during winter decreases, reducing the effectiveness of organs. Due to this, our body temperature goes down. We feel cold inside if we don’t indulge ourselves in activities that keep us heated. Definitely, we could eat foods that keep us warm from the inside and indulge ourselves in winter delights but physical activities are as necessary as a good winter diet.

We know that working out in winter seems to be beyond imagination. Many of us would give up our workout schedule so that we get some extra sleep. But who said that in order to keep yourself warm and physically active in winter can be possible only by working out? Well, introducing Yoga! Of course, you are well-versed with this term but let us elaborate in this blog on how Yoga could be the most comfortable yet effortless exercise for you to carry on in the winter. This blog will give you some winter yoga tips, that will keep you warm, fit, hit, and healthy.

Yoga is a physical, mental, and spiritual practice that aims to control the mind, recognize a detached consciousness untouched by the mind, calm it and end suffering. It is performed in the form of various asanas (poses) that builds bodily and mental strength, improve awareness, and build harmony within oneself. In this blog, we will explore some yoga poses for winter which you can perform to reduce your muscle stiffness and improve blood circulation.

Yoga Poses for Winters:

Surya Namaskar (Sun-Salutation)

Hailed to be the most popular yogic kriya for decades, Surya namaskar is the perfect yoga practice to start off your day. Surya Namaskar includes 12 poses which are performed to attain plenty of health benefits. You can even only perform Surya Namaskar for the day and get going with your other routine also. Practice it for weight reduction, healthy hair, a better digestive system, battling insomnia, and much more.

Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward Dog Pose)

This pose calms your nervous system, and builds a balance between your right side and left side, as well as between your upper body and lower body. The purpose here is to intake the earth's energy through your hands and let it enter into your entire body, sliding down to your toes.

Ashta Chandrasana (Crescent Lunge)

This pose builds stamina and generates heat in your body. The purpose of this asana is to make humans capable of facing life with an open heart. You get clarity in seeking the upcoming events while staying down to earth. With the constant sweeping of arms, the stagnation of wintery elements breaks inside your body, releasing toxicity as it breaks.

Trikonasana (Triangle Pose)

Almost all your muscles are engaged in this posture, balancing your entire system physically and generating energy inside your body. Your legs are grounded with your hands above maintaining a balance, keeping you calm and composed.

Utkatasana (Fierce Pose)

Considered to be the most essential pose in order to generate heat inside the body. This posture is good to build strength and empowerment within the body. It not only focuses on muscles but also your joints and bones, strengthening them to the core. With every breath intake, inner heat is produced keeping your body warm and charged.

Ardha Matsyendrasana (Half Lord of The Fishes Pose)

The twisted posture focuses on your core area, building a stronger digestive system within. Also, your back is twisted which clams your entire organs of the nervous system. It stimulates the immune system to fight off all the foreign elements inside your body which is helpful during the winter season.

Savasana (Corpse Pose)

This asana works as a cool-down for yoga. Your body is relieved and relaxed from all the muscle engagement. Just lie down on your mat and let the heat flow inside your body while you remain still, calm, and composed.
