Co-Founder of KONA Preeti Singh shares Top 10 Yoga Poses to keep you fit in Lockdown

Yoga is a far deeper experience than a physical exercise routine, which is why I’d love to share some of my top yoga moves with you says Co-Founder of KONA Preeti Singh.

Life is full of surprises and new adventures, and hopefully – with an open heart and positive attitude – you can see all of those possibilities unfold before your very own eyes. Sometimes we’re just distracted, or simply not ready to see ‘the forest for the trees’. It’s all to be found in your own good time. Yoga teaches you to live life in the present moment, to cherish all that you have in the here-and-now, and be grateful for all that you are.

But how? As a teacher, I have found that the individual poses (and the practice itself) act as a mirror for your present state of being – as an indication of your true ‘self’. We can only practice and teach from experience: what we believe, and where we’re at, at that point in time. As an example, when you open up deeper into a backbend movement, you’ll notice opportunities will open up around you. Stopping for a moment and actually ‘checking in’ to notice how you feel, rather than running away from yourself, will give you the power to own your world. Yoga will give you the tools to keep you grounded, rejuvenated, and creating a flexible and strong body, mind, and spirit. It is a lifestyle that feeds into all areas of your existence, you just need to reflect and be open to it in order to truly feel and see it. It really works!

So here are some tools for you to use when you need them – Preeti Singh swears by them, and given her compassionate, kind and considerate nature, they are clearly working for her! After all, the practice is there for you to benefit from – both on and OFF the yoga mat.

1) Shoulder Stand pose (Sarvangasana)

This is my absolute favourite pose because it gives me great energy.

This ‘queen’ of all the poses helps to relax your whole body by resting the heart, calming the nervous system and promoting a sound sleeping pattern.

2) Wheel pose (Urdhva Dhanurasana)

This is great for stress release – it’s really good for getting rid of emotional tension. It’s also a great stretch.

This pose allows you to embrace life and ‘go for it’ in your everyday activities. You’ll feel energised and full of vitality after this pose. I’d strongly recommend you practice after performing some forward bends, and not before going to bed! It opens the chest and lungs, and tones and strengthens the arms and legs as well.

3) Half Spinal Twist pose (Ardha Matsyendrasana)

This is great for cleansing the kidneys. You feel great afterwards because you’re squeezing out the toxins.

As you turn and twist, it releases and removes any stressful situation you may be holding onto- it gives you the power to see life from every perspective. It also increases spinal flexibility, opens the chest and shoulders, strengthens and massages the abdominal organs and stimulates digestion.

4) Warrior II pose (Virabhadrasana II)

This is great for preparing you for the day ahead. It gives you good grounding and strength.

This pose provides you with strength and determination to follow your dreams. It builds muscle tone in the legs, belly and upper body.

5) Tree pose (Vriksasana)

I love this because it’s a great balancing pose. It strengthens the ankles and gives me good grounding.

This pose is very grounding and balancing (on all levels). It helps to build strength in the legs, opens the hips and stabilises the sacrum.

6) Meditation pose (Sukhasana)

Preeti Singh always gives herself time at the start and end of her daily yoga practice to sit quietly in meditation in order to find inner stillness and peace. Beauty starts from within, and this is what lies in the heart of a yoga practice. This is a reason why Brand Kona founded by her is also drawn to yoga — she understands that your healthy glow of nourishment is what everyone sees around you. Preeti Singh understands that life is here to be cherished, and that every day is a day to be grateful for; she embodies the truth that life will return to you the same level of appreciation that you give to it.

You can incorporate any of these poses into a dynamic sequence to absorb their benefits. Remember that your practice is with you wherever you go – it’s wonderful to experience the space of tranquillity once you surrender and let go, becoming more in tune with the beauty of life’s adventures. You just need to be open to it all.

Please lay in savasana after every mini practice, she suggest – you’ll be able to absorb and digest the practice fully, calming your nervous system for the rest of your day.
