Energizing Yoga Pose

If you are looking for a quick pick-me-up, skip the coffee and instead try the Downward-Facing Dog yoga pose! It is a revitalizing pose that is traditionally used to:
  • Calm the brain and relieve stress and mild depression
  • Energize the body
  • Stretch the shoulders, hamstrings, calves, arches and hands
  • Strengthen the arms and legs
  • Prevent osteoporosis
It is also said to help improve digestion, insomnia, back pain and fatigue. See how to do Downward-Facing Dog.
