Whether or not you regularly practice yoga, you can still take advantage of the ancient practice’s stress-relieving poses. We asked Pure Yoga Instructor Kiley Holliday, known for her Vinyasa and Hot Power classes, to showcase a few of the most effective poses that can be done virtually anywhere. No matter which poses you opt for, however, remember to focus on stretching out the breath by taking long, deep inhales through your nose and long, deep exhales out your mouth. Try to hold each pose for at least one minute but ideally two to five minutes, as you will release more stress when you hold each pose longer.
