Relaxation made easy – transforming the Citan into a yoga mat

Long periods sitting in a vehicle are common during the vacation season and a normal part of day-to-day life. The yoga expert Anna Kleb makes tense muscles a thing of the past with short tutorials.

Relaxation in only a few steps – regardless of where and when

"Breathe in deeply and press your palms together in front of your chest. Close your eyes and breathe in deeply through your nose and out through your mouth". This is the sound of the yoga trainer Anna Kleb giving her yogis relaxation instructions. Normally she teaches on yoga mats in closed rooms. However, there is not always enough time and space for a complete yoga session. Sometimes speed is of the essence: but is there still a way to relax body and mind? Anna Kleb demonstrates how.

Relaxation to-go and made easy

Driving to or back from a vacation often ends with a stiff neck and numb legs. But it does not have to be that way. Anna Kleb proves that yoga is possible anytime and anywhere, even at a highway rest stop. She knows exactly which simple exercises release tension and relax the muscles, making the rest of the drive easier. She needs neither a lot of space nor special equipment. In two short tutorials she presents five simple exercises that can be performed in and on the vehicle.
