5 Poses to help recover from long road trips | 42Yogis.com

Today I’m headed off to Chicago. By car. It’s a 12 hour drive for me, and that doesn’t include construction, traffic, or stopping for gas. 12+ hours is a long time to sit in a car and sitting for prolonged periods of time can make your body stiff and sore. Yoga is a great way to recover from sitting too long, and some poses are better than others.

Here are 5 yoga poses to help recover from long road trips.
