While yoga is often associated with relaxation, there are several yoga poses that can help wake up your central nervous system, and give your body a natural energy boost. "Yoga gets your body moving in such a way that you feel alive and energetic," says Kimberly Fowler, author of "The No Om Zone," and owner of YAS Fitness Centers. "Personally, no other form of exercise makes me feel this way."
The best part? This gentle yoga routine takes less than 10 minutes to complete, so they're perfect to add to your morning routine (and won't have you running late).
