Find your Focus

Forward Fold:  Uttanasana

Trying to find your focus after a stressful day at work can be impossible.  Try this yoga pose to clear your mind.
Stand with your feet hip-width apart and inhale as you raise your hands to the sky (arms are extended above the head).  Exhale as you lower your arms bending through the hips into your forward fold.  As you continue to move forward keep the knees bent. If your hands do not reach the ground, either hold onto your elbows and place two yoga blocks under your shoulders and allow your hands to rest on them.  Hold for 1 minute.  The rush of oxygen-rich blood to the brain will make you feel more alert.
