#Yoga You Can Do In Bed
There’s no denying that one of the best parts of yoga is the peacefulness you feel after a session. However, it isn’t always possible to practice yoga in a studio or even on a yoga mat. Fortunately, there are plenty of yoga poses you can do while you’re still tucked in your bed. Here’s how you can experience the ultimate in relaxation.

##Start the Day with Bed Yoga
If you’re looking for an easy way to start your morning, look no further than bed yoga. Practicing yoga before you get out of bed gives you a chance to greet the morning in a peaceful and mindful way. Here are some poses that can help get you started:

* Plank – Place your hands on the mattress and draw your belly button in towards your spine as you raise your body off the bed.

* Downward Dog – Step your feet back until your hips are above your knees, then press your feet and hands down on the bed.

* Warrior II – Extend your arms out parallel to your shoulders and step one foot back into a gentle lunge.

* Seated Forward Fold – From a seated position, extend your legs along the bed and slowly bend forward, reaching your hands toward your feet.

##Experience In-Bed Yoga Before Bed
Just like starting the morning with a few yoga poses, doing just a few poses right before bed can leave you feeling both relaxed and energized. Try out any of these restorative poses as you’re winding down for the evening:
