BED YOGA RETREAT DAY ONE: MORNING YOGA

This ten minute sequence can be done before you get out of bed in the morning, so even if you don't have time or energy for a longer yoga practice, you've already gotten a bit of yoga in for the day. Prioritizing our practice first thing in the morning allows us to begin our day feeling centered and present, and this carries throughout the rest of the day. If you have time, this day also comes with a guided morning affirmations meditation practice
