10-Minute Yoga Supersets: Better than Another Hour of Yoga This year, after 15 years of yoga practice and transforming my body, I found myself hitting a plateau. Though my practice regularly involves power moves like jumping forward into Crow Pose and holding Warrior Pose for a long time, my muscle tone seemed to be stuck on autopilot: never decreasing, but never really going to that next level, either. My body, it seems, has become accustomed to the level of my practice. Whether it’s in weight loss or athletic training goals, hitting a plateau is normal. To move past the plateau, I could have just started practicing more. I know what some of you are thinking: “This chick owns a yoga studio and practices a ton … I don’t have that much time.” The magic word here is “supersets” Bodybuilders and exercise physiologists have known about the benefits of the superset technique for years, and it’s time we brought it onto the mat. In yoga we often do one repetition of any given pose — say, Chaturanga (Pushup Pose) — then move on. Do 3 sets of 5-10.

6 Simple Yoga Stretches for Daily De-Stressing We have a tradition at the Behance office called the “four o’clock stretch,” where we step away from our desks to do a few simple stretches and recharge. When energy is waning mid-afternoon, it’s pretty incredible how a little deep breathing and muscle movement can completely re-invent your mood. Below are a few of my favorite “office-friendly stretches.” 1. There is no aspect of relaxation more important than breathing. To begin square breathing, sit in a comfortable, upright position on the floor or in a chair. Repeat 10 times, going at your own pace: Inhale 2, 3, 4. 2. Interlace your fingers, and raise your arms above your head, with your palms facing upwards. 3. Stand with your feet hip-distance apart. Once you have the arm wrap going, look straight ahead and try to keep your elbows lifted. Unwrap your arms and hold them out to the side again. 4. Still standing with your feet hip-distance apart, reach your hands behind you, clasping them together in a fist at the base of your back.
