Fitness and good health are ideals that all of us aspire for, but most find hard to achieve. The difficulty with sticking to health routines and regimens stems from the fact that most of us suffer from severe time constraints as a result of the fast paced yet sedentary lives we lead. This off course means that our lifestyles take a toll on our health and we feel powerless to even counter and cope with it. Things are however not as bad as they seem and there’s a lot we can do with the little spare time we have. There are a number of exercise workouts that can be performed within 15 to 20 minutes, and they will leave you feeling rejuvenated and healthier.

Yoga is particularly beneficial as it is simple, inexpensive and not very time consuming. There are quite a few good yoga morning workouts that you can follow. Yoga workouts generally comprise of poses or asanas and breathing exercises and pranayama. As you get familiar with the different routines you can formulate your own workout sequence depending on your specific needs. Although the workout will just take up twenty minutes of your day, if done faithfully, it will minimize your stress levels and restore calm, reduce muscular tension and normalize breathing, creating a complete and wholesome sense of relaxation and tranquility for not just your body, but your mind and spirit as well.

Performing such a daily yoga workout will improve your digestion and cardiovascular function, enhancing the quality of your life itself. As you fall into the routine you will experience the myriad benefits of yoga. You will be able to sleep more easily and get better sleep, you will feel more energized and fresh when you start your day, and your mind will be a lot sharper and focused.

One such workout that you can follow is the Five Tibetan Rites workout. Unlike the traditional yoga routines that are dominated by static poses, this form is akin to other contemporary poses that stress a continuous or flowing sequence. Each pose in the sequence is termed as a rite and the sequence is as follows.

  • Clockwise Whirling: As you spin, inhale and exhale.
  • Head And Leg Raises: When raising your legs and head inhale deeply, and exhale whilst lowering them.
  • Camel Pose: As your spine arches back inhale and exhale as it returns to the normal erect position.
  • Tabletop Pose: AS you raise your body inhale and hold your breath while in the position. As you return to your starting position exhale.
  • Up And Down Dog Pose: As in the other poses inhale when rising, and exhale when lowering your body.
  • Last of all perform an abdominal breathing exercise or Uddiyana Bandha.
