Martha Quinn's 6 Easy Yoga Poses To Reduce Stress (PICS)

Have you been feeling on edge lately, like every day is Manic Monday? You’re not alone! The disruption of COVID has created feelings of stress and anxiety in many people, including me to be honest! So I’m always on the lookout for stress disrupters!

I found these “6 Yoga Poses That Promise To Reduce Stress. The Mayo Clinic says “studies have shown that yoga may help reduce stress and anxiety. It can also enhance your mood and overall sense of well-being.”To prove that ANYBODY can take advantage of these yoga poses, my husband Jordan took these pictures of me trying them out in my yard for you to view alongside the professional pictured in the article. If my versions of the poses make you laugh that’s good too, laughter is a great stress reducer!

De-stress Yoga pose #1, Child’s Pose

De-stress Yoga pose #2, Downward Dog, with my workout buddy Frodo who has the inner calm going strong!

De-stress Yoga pose #3, Forward Fold or Rag Doll (cue Aerosmith!)

De-stress Yoga pose #4, Legs Up The Wall. This one’s not mentioned in this particular article, but it is also a restorative yoga pose that can relieve stress and tension. This one my pup Bueller enjoys!

Try these out and let me know if they help you, or any other ways you find help relieve stress and anxiety, other than kissing Valentino by a crystal-blue Italian stream!
