Lying Yoga Poses

If you are searching for yoga poses that you can perform while lying on your yoga mat, you are right in this category. Here you will find listed all those yoga poses for which people do not have to sit or stand up.

You might believe that lying yoga poses are the easiest ones and cannot be very intensive. This thought however is wrong. There are relaxing poses that focus on breathing and calming down body and mind but also activating and stimulating exercises, both for strength and for flexibility. These yoga poses can actively strengthen your muscles in any part of your body and you will notice how they get strong without you even getting up from the floor.

Some of the yoga postures that you see below can be done even while lying in bed, for that please visit our section Yoga in Bed. There you find exercises specifically for the purpose of doing it in time of rehabilitation, in mornings or evenings and if you are bedridden.

Of course you can do many of the breathing exercises while you are lying, too.
Enjoy your yoga practice!
