The benefits of yoga – and exercise in general – are enormous, but there are times when life gets busy and finding the time to get a class isn’t always easy. In her new book, “Yoga Sparks: 108 Easy Practices for Stress Relief in a Minute of Less,” author Carol Krucoff, a yoga therapist and fitness expert, offers quick and easy yoga exercises that can be practices anytime and anywhere.
“Yoga Sparks are simple, effective tools to help initiate or deepen a home yoga practice and take the benefits off the mat and into daily life,” Krucoff says in the book.
The exercises are perfect for beginners, looking to get started in yoga, or for the seasoned yogi who wants to extend their yoga practice into their day. Incorporating these practices into daily life – whether breathing exercise or simple postures – can ease emotional stress, increase physical strength and flexibility, and help the body to relax.
