Your weekly wellness boost from Odyssey.

Feel A Lil' Better: Because You Can Still Find Shavasana During Quarantine

No matter how good (or bad) you'd describe your health, one thing is for sure: a little boost is ALWAYS a good idea. Whether that's reading a new, motivating book, or listening to a song that speaks to your soul, there are plenty of resources to help your health thrive on any given day.

As most of the world is stuck at home right now, quarantined in attempts to squash coronavirus (COVID-19), you may be getting kind of antsy. Your usual gym is inevitably closed as to not spread germs and that class that you've gotten used to going to is probably not an option right now. Thankfully, there are plenty of kinds of exercise that can be done in the comfort of your own home — yoga is at the top of our list.

The equipment needed for a relaxing, satisfying yoga session is pretty limited, so you can easily turn your living room, bedroom, hallway, or rooftop into a yoga studio in a matter of minutes. Need some help? We've got you covered.

Each week, we're bringing you the best resources and influencers to give you a health boost. Here's what we're following this week to help you find your calm with the help of meditation.

Book: "The Yoga Anatomy Coloring Book"

If you learn by doing, maybe a coloring book is the best way to visualize how your body is supposed to look during yoga poses. A little warmup for your flow and full of ideas for ways to expand your practice, "The Yoga Anatomy Coloring Book" is your best friend for all things yoga.

Podcast: "Mindful In Minutes"

We all need some jams as we get our yoga on. Yoga Flow has all the best tunes for an amazing practice.
