We know you’re planning to party this week, and we’re all about it. We’ll be toasting the new year right along with you!
This yoga workout is designed to help you, ahem, detox and rejuvenate after a big night (or many big nights). It’s chock full of backbends and twists to help wring out your system, reenergize you, and start the new year feeling like a brand new you.
Pair these poses with some SOS Mango Recovery drinks, and we’re willing to guess you’ll be feeling a whole lot better than when you first woke up.

Warm up that spine!
Warm up with some cat / cow poses.
Then, on an inhale, extend your right arm forward at shoulder height, and your left leg back at hip height (or higher, if you’re feeling it!)
Exhale and bring your elbow and knee to touch, rounding your spine and contracting your abs. Repeat 5x, then switch sides.
Get some blood moving around!
Standing with your feet hip distance apart, bend forward and clasp your elbows with your hands. Sway gently back and forth for 5 breaths. If you’re feeling dizzy or lightheaded, don’t sway. 😉
Twist out the toxins
Standing with your feet together, bend your knees into chair pose and bring your hands into prayer position in front of your chest. Twist from your waist and hook your left elbow on your right knee. If you’re able, look up toward the sky.
Take 5 deep breaths, then switch sides.
Backbend it out
On your knees with your knees and ankles about hip distance apart, with your hands on your sacrum, lift your chest to the sky and gently bend backward. Only go as far as you’re comfortable!
If you’re backbending fairly deeply, bring your hands down to your heels.
Twist, part 2
Sit with your right leg extended. Bend your left knee and place your left foot on the outside of your right knee. Optional: bend your right knee and bring your foot to the outside of your left hip, on the ground. Lift your right arm up, then hook your right elbow on your left knee and gently twist from your waist. Make sure to keep your back straight and strong! Look out over your left shoulder for 5 breaths, then switch sides.
When in doubt, just breathe
If you’re not feeling the moving around and bending and twisting, just yet, you can always come into child’s pose and just. BREATHE.
Happy recovery, and happy New Year, everyone![/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
