Think you need an hour at the yoga mat to feel the calming effects of Yoga? Think again – and take a look at your Yogi tea carton! Given Yogi’s roots in yoga, it’s only fitting that each carton of Yogi tea includes a Yoga pose on its side panel. And, those with a busy schedule will be happy to find that the relaxing benefits of these yoga poses can be achieved in about the same amount of time it takes to steep a cup of Yogi tea.

The following yoga poses can be practiced almost anywhere and anytime, and are perfect for finding a moment of mindfulness during a hectic or busy day:



Yoga to invite tranquility

Sit cross-legged or in a chair with feet flat. Rest your right elbow on right knee. Lean your right cheekbone on the palm of your right hand. Close your eyes and relax for 1 to 3 minutes. Your mind and body will thank you.




Yoga to set your tension free

Lie on your back. While keeping your head flat on the ground, wrap your hands around shins. Gently draw the knees toward chest in a slow, easy pull as you consciously relax your lower back. Continue for 1 to 3 minutes. Out with tension, in with relaxation.


Yoga to bring peace of mind

Sit cross-legged or in a chair with feet flat. With eyes gently closed, close off right nostril with right hand and take smooth, equal breaths through the left nostril. Your target breath rate is 4 to 6 breaths per minute. Then, switch sides. Feeling at peace starts with breathing deeply.

  • Anya says:

    I like that the instructions here say you can do the poses in a chair with feet flat! That helps. I am recovering from Late Stage Lyme Disease, and my knees are not yet up to what it takes to do yoga on a mat. I do qi gong regularly, but I’d like to add yoga. Are there any posts on poses that are good for physically challenged beginners? Thank you!
