For this yoga session you will need a clear spot on the wall and floor.
The point of this yoga session is to relieve stress and anxiety.
Each pose is meant to be held for 5 deep breaths or longer, it is up to you. Do your best to relax into these poses and try to forget about what is happening around you, try to focus on your breaths.
*Breathing tip: inhale for 3 seconds, and exhale for 6 seconds.
Lay down on your back with your legs straight up resting against the wall. Place one hand on your heart and the other hand on your stomach. When you inhale your stomach should expand, when you exhale your stomach should sink in.
After you finish your waterfall pose, place the bottoms of your feet together, slide them down the wall bringing them closer towards the floor. Place one hand on your heart and the other hand on your stomach, again focus on expanding your stomach during inhalation and sinking your stomach in during exhalation.
