Revitalize and perk up your afternoon (9-minute class)

When the dreaded afternoon slump hits, try these refreshing moves from Rebecca Keane, a yoga instructor at Cancer Wellness.

  • Bring your feet a little wider than hip-width apart.

  • Inhale, using your whole breath to carry your arms up overhead.

  • Touch your palms together, then bend at the waist, dropping your head toward the floor with arms extended out.

  • Either drop your hands all the way to your feet or modify the move by placing your arms on your thighs with bent knees. Either version will give you a great stretch in the hamstrings and the hip joints.

  • Breathe deeply, drop your head and arms, and round your spine as you inhale and slowly return to standing.

  • Open your shoulders wide and bring your feet together in a mountain pose, a traditional yoga standing pose.

  • Close your eyes and take a couple of deep breaths.

  • Repeat as needed to perk up and revitalize yourself throughout the day.
