Ease into the Morning with Bed Yoga

Stretch into a stress-free Monday. Start the week feeling fresh, energized, and stress-free by practicing yoga from the comfort of your own bed.

Exercising from bed sounds too good to be true, but with bed yoga, it’s possible to start your morning with a rejuvenating workout from the comfort of your mattress.

Yoga is a form physical activity that combines stretching with light, flowing movements. Practicing yoga can help improve range of motion and circulation, as well as relieve stress and anxiety. Yoga requires the synchronization of movement and breath, and this alignment of body and mind is the perfect way to ease into the day.

Because it can be practiced on a soft surface, like a mattress, bed yoga is accessible to people of all ages and ability levels, and it can even be used as gentle alternative for people recovering from injury. Bed yoga is also convenient—you don’t even have to roll out of bed, just dedicate 5-10 minutes right after you wake up in the morning.

Our Monday Morning Bed Yoga routine was produced in collaboration with NYU Langone’s Department of Integrative Health Programs.
