Learn Yoga In Five Minutes A Day With These ‘YogaGrams’

You don’t have to commit an hour every day to a yoga practice to reap the benefits. In less than five minutes a day, you can learn new yoga poses.

These YogaGrams — illustrations posted by Sarah Kathleen Peck on Instagram — are a simple introduction to yoga. She’s posting a series of 100 poses (asanas) you can do at any time, (mostly) anywhere. They’re like quick yoga “bites.”

Here’s how she explains it:

The weekly sequences usually start with a warm-up on Mondays, build to a harder standing pose and inversion option by Thursday or Friday, and then cool down with a restorative pose on Sundays. By the end of #100YogaGrams, you’ll have a sample platter of several warm-ups, standing poses, and restorative poses so you can customise your own yoga practice by mix-and-matching with the cards.

Every so often, I show you a couple of poses in a day-by-day pattern, and then string them together in what’s called a “flow.” So, for example, poses 3 through 7 can be tied together in what’s known as a vinyasa flow, and I draw an asana glyph series on day #8 that shows how to link them together. I also show a video (#9) that demonstrates how to tie the poses together in your own 5-minute or 10-minute sequence!

They’re a great way to sneak more movement into your day in very little time, and you can sign up for a daily email — 21 days’ worth — to build the habit as a gentle nudge.
