Yoga for the tub

0
After a long day at work, the only thing you want to do is take a quick shower, watch TV and go to bed.

Why not run yourself a deep, aromatic bath and combine it with some yoga?

Do it like this:

Sit up in the tub and support yourself by putting your hands flat on the bottom of the bath below your calves.

Lift your feet up and place the soles flat on the end of the bath and then gently lower your upper body into a forward bend.

Slowly drop your head forward, relaxing your neck muscles and breathe deeply while relaxing into the stretch.

Feel the tension melt away.
