The bed yoga routine

Introducing the  bed yoga routine, designed specifically for busy bees like you who need a little TLC after a long day at the office. These simple yet effective poses will help ease those aches and pains, leaving you feeling refreshed and revitalised.

First up, we’ve got the pelvis wedge. This move involves lying flat on your back with your pelvis wedged at the edge of the bed. It might sound strange, but trust us, it works wonders for pelvic tilt and back pain relief.

Next, let’s tackle those wide hips with the waist wedge. Simply lie on your stomach with your waist against the edge of the bed, and lift one leg toward the ceiling before bending it forward. This move not only lifts the buttocks but also helps to correct leg shape for a more balanced look.

But we’re not done yet! How about some foot placements? Place one foot on the bed and bend it outward, while the other foot goes backwards with the toes on the ground. This simple move helps to adjust the pelvis and improve blood circulation.

And let’s not forget about the classic knee bend. Sit on the bed with one leg bent near the pubic bone and the other leg straight. Then, place a pillow under the chest and alternate sides for a few minutes. This move is significant for enhancing leg contours and relieving stiffness in the lower back.

Last but not least, we’ve got the kneeling position. Kneel on the bed and then lay your body backwards on a pillow, with your elbows clasped above your head. Hold this pose for a few minutes to help you unwind and drift off into dreamland.
