10-Minute Morning Wake-Up Sequence

As the days get shorter, the mornings get a little bit darker every day. For many of us, it's that much tougher to get out of bed in the morning. Luckily, there's yoga to help get us going!

Doing yoga doesn't mean you need to commit an hour or two a day in order to call it a practice. Even 10 minutes to breathe, center, move and wiggle are enough to get your mind and body connected and moving before a long day ahead. I do yoga every morning in my kitchen! Yep, between the coffee brewing, breakfast cooking or Vitamix blending, you make the time!
