6. Fish pose

What to do:

  • Sit down on the floor with your legs straight in front of you and your hands placed under your glutes, palms down.

  • Relax your neck and lower your body until the crown of your head touches the floor.
  • Hold the position for 30-60 seconds.

5. Nighttime goddess stretch

What to do:

  • Lie down on your back with your knees bent and your arms at your sides, palms up.

  • Stay in this pose for 2-3 minutes.

Results: This hip-opening pose helps to lower your blood pressure, slow the heart rate, and reduce headaches.
