5-Minute Calming Yoga Flow for Stress Relief

Call on this five-minute yoga flow from Ania Tippkemper, a yoga instructor with the Sweat app, any time you need to relieve stress and restore balance within yourself. “It’s nice to practice in the morning after you wake up to prepare yourself and prepare your mind for the day,” Tippkemper says. “And it’s wonderful to practice in the evening after a long day spent at a desk working — just to melt stress away and to unwind and relax a little bit.”

Follow along as Tippkemper guides you through five foundational yoga poses: Child’s pose, Downward-Facing Dog, Pigeon pose, head-to-knee position, and crossed-leg pose. You’ll hold each pose for a few breaths. The flow is paced slow for deep relaxation and stretching, Tippkemper says.

All you need to complete the flow is a yoga mat and five minutes of time.
