I love setting the vibe with low lights, candles, and soft tunes. I’ll do the legs up the wall yoga pose while taking slow deep breaths down into my belly button. It’s zen time.

For those of us who sit a lot during the day, I recommend unwinding with the stretches. Some of my favorites are hip flexor stretches, pigeon pose, figure four, and child’s pose.

If I'm going all the way, a nice relaxing bubble bath with candles sets the mood. Then, I mix up a little yoga flow of down dog, pigeon pose, figure four, and child's pose.

I unwind by moving my arms, legs, and torso into positions that feel good and be mindful of those positions. Tuning in to your body can be powerful.

As a runner and someone who sits a lot for work, my most sore muscles are my back and calves. I love cat-cow, standing calf stretches, or anything with the foam roller!

For somebody who sits a lot more than they used to, hip flexor stretches are big go-tos for me.

Child's pose and the cobra stretch are my go to stretches to relax before bed!

Shavasana or corpse pose, which is simply lying flat on your back with your eyes closed and practicing deep breathing always helps me quiet my mind before bed.

My nighttime ritual is doing legs up the wall yoga pose. It helps melt away the tension of the day.

If you sit often or drive a lot - try stretching your hips and butt! Personally, I like hip flexor stretches and pigeon pose.
