Class Name: Pranayama, Dristi, & Bandhas in Ashtanga Yoga

Length: 5 minutes

Props: None

My Ranking: 7 out of 10

Price: FREE for all.

This is a free short talk that you can access without paying any membership fees. Alik explains and reminds us how to use Pranayama, Dristi and Bandhas in Ashtanga Yoga practice. This is an informative talk and there is no physical practice here so this is the main reason I gave it a 7 out of 10 for my personal ranking because I felt like I wanted to learn more about each term or even practice a few breaths.

Maybe I was expecting too much from a 5 minute explanation because he can’t really go over all the details in such a short time, so this is a good summary and a good introduction if you are new to yoga and to yoga term in general, Alik explains the terms and their importance in a very calm and interesting way.

Teacher: Shy Sayar

Class Name: Therapeutic Alignment: Janu Sirsasana

Length: 6 minutes

Props: None (Maybe a yoga mat or a blanket).

My Ranking: 9 out of 10

In this short yoga lesson Shy explains how to do the one-legged seated forward bend pose, it is very important to know hoe to correctly do this pose in order to create strength and flexibility in the hips and back.

I enjoyed this 5-minute yoga stretch because not only did I actually feel the stretch (which I love) I also learned how to perform this stretch with perfect technique. This is important to me because I love to run and I do this stretch almost after every time I go for a run, so now with Shy’s tips, I feel more confident that I am doing this stretch correctly.

An Easy and Short Yoga Routine

Teacher: Dia Draper

Class Name: A Moment for You (Feeling Anxious)

Length: 5 minutes

Props: None (Maybe a yoga mat or a blanket).

My Ranking: 10 out of 10

Price: 2.99$ (or FREE if you are a member).

This is the 5-minute lesson that I loved the most out of all the ones I wrote about today mainly because this routine combines several different yoga poses and stretches that felt great. I also liked that fact that you can do this routine anywhere you like, although some of the poses required being on the floor and I’m not so sure I like the idea of touching my office floor with my bare hands. Maybe it is smarter to use a small mat or a blanket on the floor, just so you won’t have to touch the ground.

If you are a busy person and don’t have time to go to a traditional yoga class in a studio, you can practice at home with no problem. This short 5-minute yoga routine can fit in your schedule instead of TV time or computer time.

Create Time For Me Time

It is so important to take a break every once in a while (and when I say once in a while I mean every day), create some space and time for you even if it’s only for 5 minutes. Find a spot in your house where you can practice yoga and stretch and you can even invite you kids to join in with your short yoga routine.
