Sort out your post-workout routine and avoid sore muscles with 4 easy yoga stretches: Watch Video | Health
Achieving a healthy lifestyle involves exercising, eating healthily, regularly monitoring your mental health, and maintaining a work-life balance. More often than not, exercise helps achieve many of these health benefits. However, your workout is always incomplete without some post and pre-workout stretches. While people diligently do their pre-workout stretches, many refrain from doing these exercises after their workout. And sore muscles at the end. If you are one of them, we have a yoga guide for you. It includes four yoga stretches that you can easily practice after your workout.
Malaika Arora’s yoga partner and entrepreneur Sarvesh Shashi took to Instagram to share the yoga guide video. It featured four yoga asanas that gym goers and yogis can practice after their workout session. He captioned the post, “There are two types of people in the world. People who say, “Yoga is a workout” and those who say, “Yoga is not a workout.” Both types of people experience soreness after exercise. Here are some post-workout stretches for gym-goers, and some well-known stretches for yogis after a long day of sitting.”
The four asanas are Revolved Low Lunge Pose, Sleeping Pigeon Pose, Scorpion Twist, and Seated Glute Stretch Pose. Watch the following video:

Benefits of Revolved Low Lung Pose:
Revolved Low Lunge Pose combines the basic Anjaneyasana and the Low Lunge Twist, or Anjaneyasana Twist. This stretch improves deep breathing and balance by stretching muscles with a twist. It also deeply stretches the muscles in your lower back, shoulders, arms, abdomen, thighs, and psoas, increasing range of motion.
Benefits of sleeping pigeon posture:
According to Sarvesh Shashi, “This stretch helps open up the hips and gives it a great stretch. This pose also releases tension in the lower body.”
Scorpion Twist Benefits:
Scorpion Twist is an amazing pose to “relax the body after an intense workout. It also helps increase flexibility and mobility.”
Seated Glute Stretch Benefits:
This pose lowers the “risk of injury after a training session”. It stretches the glutes and increases flexibility and range of motion.
