Yoga is an art, which helps nourish the soul, body, and mind. It helps with flexibility, strength, stress, weight loss, toning, balancing and focus. Additionally, yoga promotes peaceful mind, good body posture, and adequate blood flow. Some easy-to-do yoga poses will get you started with the goals you have in mind for a healthy and balanced summer body.

Cat Cow Pose


The cat-cow pose is particularly helpful for spine, neck and back problems. It also helps relieve periods pain.


Child pose



The child pose is particularly beneficial for hips, thighs and lower body abdomen. Working the stretches, this pose helps release stress at the same time.

Bridge pose


BRIDGE POSE// A great pose for office workers, students and those who need a general mood lift. A special tip for beginners: Once the shoulders are rolled under, don’t pull them forcefully away from your ears, which tends to overstretch the neck. Lift the tops of the shoulders slightly toward the ears and push the inner shoulder blades away from the spine. Benefits: Stretches the chest, neck, and spine Calms the brain and helps alleviate stress and mild #depression Stimulates abdominal organs, lungs, and thyroid Rejuvenates tired legs Improves #digestion Helps relieve the symptoms of menopause Relieves menstrual discomfort when done supported Reduces #anxiety, fatigue, backache, headache, and insomnia Therapeutic for #asthma, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, and sinusitis #bridgepose #yoga

The triangle pose may look tough…and even though it might take you days to get the correct positioning, it’s great for one’s overall body. This looks-hard-to-do posture strengthens our back, abdominal, legs, arms, and ankles.


Warrior pose


✨Day 8 of #WomenYogaTribe challenge and the pose is #WarriorPose ✨I chose #warrior2 as this is an asana commemorating the exploits of a mythical warrior. This pose helps strengthen your shoulders, arms, legs, ankles and back. It also opens yours hips, chest and lungs and improves focus, balance and stability. This pose is still quite difficult for me, as I had an injured knee and a surgery, however being able to hold it for longer each time makes me stronger both mentally and physically🙏🏼✨Lovely hosts @stardivakhushi @mylittleyogi @carolineanne92 and @carreyia 🙏🏼 Sponsors @dharmabumsactive @mayanyogatribe @bunniesandzen_yoga_accessories @bohemian_island @yoga_democracy @gypsyarts @heal_meow @malamalamajewelry @liforme @yogapaws and @yogisurprise 🙏🏼 #yoga #yogi #yogini #yogiinthecity #yogachallenge #women #igyoga #yogaeverydamnday #yogalove #yogalife #yogalondon #yogagirl #healthyliving #fit #fitness #fitgirl #yogajourney #vsco #nature #happiness #goddess #beagoddess #healthylifestyle #lithuaniangirl #wcw #mindfulness #namaste
