5 Uplifting Yoga Poses to Energize You in Foster City

October 30th, 2014

The tempo of modern-day life can often leave you feeling exhausted at the end of the day. Luckily, our Foster City apartments with yoga studio are the perfect solution for combating fatigue.

Here are five yoga poses that will help you relax and allow you to enjoy luxury and comfort at The Plaza to the fullest:

  • Start your day with the Half Sun Salutation (Surya Namaskara). Position yourself into the Mountain Pose (Tadasana). Extend your arms above your head as you inhale, and bend your body forward as you exhale. Lift your torso halfway, and place your hands on your shins, extending your spine. As you exhale, bend forward again. On the last inhale, stand up straight and bring your hands into the “prayer” position.
  • Stretch your core and torso, and open your chest with the Camel Pose (Ustrasana). Kneel with your thighs perpendicular to the surface. Put your hand on your pelvis with your fingers pointing down. Press your shoulder blades against your ribs as you inhale. Lean back and drop your hands to your feet. Pressing firmly against your heels, relax your shoulders and hold the pose.
  • Strengthen your legs and bring energy into your body with the Warrior II Pose (Virabhadrasana II).
  • The Restorative Triangle Pose (Utthita Trikonasana) focuses on expanding and breathing. Stand with your feet around 4 feet apart. Turn your front foot outward and back foot inward, and stride your hand toward your front shin. Face the sky as you raise the other hand up.
  • Finish your session with the balancing, whole body-strengthening Side Plank (Vasisthasana) with five breaths on each side.

The opportunity to relax with the help of your own yoga routine is just one of the perks at our Foster City apartments with yoga studio. Contact us for more information or to schedule a tour and see for yourself.
