3 Yoga Poses to Rejuvenate You at Work

Release tension from your back, neck and shoulders with these 3 simple moves.

Twist - Place your palms on the arm of your chair and turn your chest and abdomen to the right, moving your left shoulder forward and your right shoulder back.  Expand your chest fully. Hold for 4-5 breaths. Repeat on the other side.


Heart Opener - Sit tall and clasp your hands behind you, grabbing onto the back of the chair. With your hands behind you, lift your chest up toward the ceiling and stretch your throat. Hold this pose for at least 5 breaths.                                   




Neck Stretch - Make sure you are sitting upright without slouching. Inhale, reach through the crown of your head, exhale and bring your right ear toward your right shoulder. Keep the chin lifted and the shoulders down. Hold here for 5 breaths, creating space between your left shoulder and left ear. Inhale back to center. Repeat on each side 2-3 times.
