Seated Yoga Guidelines
Remember toilet yoga can be done anytime you are sitting down, whether on the couch or in a chair, or especially when traveling in a car, bus, or airplane.
Be gentle on your body! Start slowly and gently, and stop if it hurts. It should feel like a good, soft stretch. Being consistent breeds flexibility and results. Pushing yourself too hard only brings injuries!
Always consult your doctor before starting any new exercise program. Falling off the toilet and hitting your head can be life-threatening, so if you think you can’t do the pose or you might lose your balance, please don’t try the pose, or ask for help from a friend that doesn’t mind the smell.
What sound does a horse make? NEEE-HIIIII!!!
Well this is more than a horse because it’s the DOUBLE KNEE-HIGH!
What’s this Toilet Yoga exercise for? It’s for FUN! LOL and it’s also to stretch out your hip joints and sacro-iliac joints. (If you grab your hips like you’re about to tell someone off, your thumbs on your back near the top of your butt is where those joints are located.) These the two joints can get sore from too much sitting or standing, and are also involved in sciatica.
Will also increase circulation to the sex organs, hormones, and anal sphincter, more commonly known as the “butt hole.”
Do NOT do this exercise if you are frail, elderly, or have any trouble with balance. You can fall! This is definitely an Advanced Toilet Yoga move. Treat it with respect. 😉
Toilet Yoga: Double Knee-High
- Make sure your toilet and feet are dry.
- Place your right foot on the toilet seat, in the front right corner.
- Place the left foot on the front left corner of the toilet seat.
- Let your sitting bones drop toward the floor gently, as you take 3 deep breaths.
- Release and sit back down; relax for a moment.
- Repeat for a total of 3 times.
Definitely an advanced move, but very helpful for the lower back and hips.
Cheers to squats and kangaroos!
P.S. Alright! It may seem silly, but toilet yoga really works! Just do 1 pose for 1 minute every time you sit on the toilet. The easiest one or the one you like the most. You’re sitting there anyway! 😉
