Raise your hand if savasana is your favorite part of yoga. Yep, mine is definitely raised. I initially felt guilty for calling nearly sleeping my “workout,” but quickly found that I wasn’t giving it enough credit. Taking the time to slow my body and mind improved my focus, refreshed my muscles, and made me more productive.

Give your muscles the extra care they need with 22 minutes of deep stretching. Using a bolster, blocks, and a band, the instructor takes you through a series of on-the-mat moves that open up and soften your muscles. You can also use household items like a couch pillow for an easy substitute. With added attention to your breathing, this video gets you to stop, think, and reflect. Child’s pose, bridge, side twist, and many others target your lower back to release any tension. So grab a mat and go relax.
