The Best 10 Minute Yoga Daily Workout

Fad workout routines come and go, but yoga has thousands of years of practice and proven physical and mental health benefits behind it. The question shouldn’t be if you’re going to practice yoga; the question should be how you’re going to work it into your life. We’ve filmed the best 10 minute yoga daily workout here at CoachUp HQ that you can incorporate into your daily routine when you wake up, right after work, school – whenever. Take it on vacation with you and take some time for yourself.

Yoga is a practice that people share together, but is really all about the individual. What’s best for some people may include some alternative poses to the ones we demonstrate here; it’s best to listen to your body. However, if you do not have any injury modifications, we recommend you follow along as this session aims to work the whole body.
