This restorative routine promotes all-day energy.
Energy levels love to ebb and flow.
That's why SilverSneakers Master Trainer Sharlyn Green created this 15-minute energizing yoga flow. Meant to help get the blood flowing and boost your endorphin levels, it's the perfect addition to your morning routine or pick-me-up from your afternoon slump.
For the greatest restorative benefits, try to really plug into the workout, centering your focus on your body and your breathing. Use the routine as a way to set your intentions for the rest of the day and move forward with renewed vitality and purpose.
How the Energizing Yoga Flow Works
Clear some open floor space so you can move freely without obstruction. If you'd like support during any of the exercises, set up near a wall or have a sturdy chair nearby. It's also helpful to have water, and you should feel free to sip as you need.
All you need to do is press play and follow along.
To keep tabs on your effort, use a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the hardest. You can ramp up or dial down as you need, but since this routine is meant to build (not drain!) your energy, resist the urge to push any harder than a 5.
As you move, keep breathing, and prioritize good form. Think of each pose as flowing from one to the other as opposed to being a standalone activity.
As always, safety is key. The exercises here may be different or more advanced than those you’ll experience in a SilverSneakers class. If you have a chronic condition, an injury, or balance issues, talk to your doctor about how you can exercise safely.
