Get to know the yoga postures with which to mitigate fatigue after long hours of travelling.

Summer, we've been waiting for you!

The season of trips, suitcases, flights... and with the latter, the dreaded jet lag. For those of you who are not familiar with the term, it is not a myth, but one of the few negative realities of travelling.

Jet lag is an imbalance produced between one's biological clock and the new timetable established when travelling long distances. This results in sleep disturbance, feelings of tiredness, lack of energy, irritability, body aches, stiff and sore muscles...

Nothing that an express yoga practice can't solve. Performing the following yoga postures will help you relieve tension and restore your balance. Reset your body with the following mini session:

  • SURYA NAMASKAR. The sun salutation is the succession of interlocking postures or asanas. It brings flexibility to muscles, joints, bones and tendons. It combats fatigue by giving you extra energy, strength and vitality, while inducing a state of calmness and mental serenity. Practice the sun salutation with our teacher Silvia Jaén.
  • UTTANASANA. Standing forward bending relieves back pain by allowing you to stretch your back completely. It's simple, stand upright (feet together) and take a deep breath. Exhale as you bend forward with your chest, and place your hands on the back of your legs at calf level. If you are flexible try placing your palms on the floor, bend your knees slightly if you need to.
  • VIPARITA KARANI. If your legs feel swollen, this is the posture for you. Lifting your legs on the wall improves circulation and stretches the whole body. Lie on a flat surface as close to the wall as you can. Extend your legs towards the ceiling, until they are fully extended over your body and your buttocks are resting on the wall. Drop both arms to the sides of your body and hold the posture for 2 minutes. If you find it difficult, use your breathing to help you.
