It’s OK to be lazy. In fact, some great work is born out of shear laziness. So go ahead, don’t change out of your pajamas, heck, don’t even stand up. We’re going to show you five poses that are so lazy you pretty much don’t have to do anything physically demanding.
However, we’ll warn you that after finishing all of these as a quick morning sesh may actually leave your mind clear and your body ready to get on with the day. Just so you know in case you wanted to be reallllllly lazy.
You read that right. Corpse pose. Like a dead human being. But that’s OK because its yoga.
As you may be able to imply, you lie there like you’re dead. Just relax every part of your body – including your mind.
While this pose may seem super easy, it can actually be very difficult. Especially when your mind is listing off all the things you’ve been putting off doing this week.
Even the title can’t get much lazier. This pose is pretty self-explanatory. Be a lady and cross your legs (but not too much). Place your hands on your knees and really feel the ground underneath you.
This totally counts as exercise.
Cow Face Pose
We’re not making this shit up. That’s what this pose is called.
Sit cross legged, but instead of having your feet where they normally are, you’re going to move them back towards your butt and away from you. Sit evenly and breathe. If you’re starting to feel less lazy, switch sides.
Probably the most physically demanding of all the poses on this list (but it’s all relative), Marichi’s post gives you that great stretchy feeling after you’ve been lying down hungover on the couch for way too long.
To do this pose extend one leg and bend the other leg over it. Try to pull up your bent leg as close to your tush as possible. Rotate towards the side of the bent leg and place your elbow on your leg. Your other arm goes out in support. Push your foot and thigh into the ground to help ya do the twist.
Kneel down, touch your toes together, sit back, stretch your arms forward, and relax.
If sitting on your feet is uncomfortable, slide in a folded blanket under your bum.
Do this for a few minutes, thinking about your breathe and just how lazy of a motherf****r you are.
