Yoga @ Work
Stretch away your stress without leaving your desk.
Yoga instructor Michele Elliman teaches viewers how to practice yoga at work. Includes many simple postures you can do in normal work clothes, right at your desk or work station.
Focusing almost entirely on the upper body, these easy-to-hold postures can all be done unobtrusively in a chair at the office without having to get up to move around. There are 14 one to two-minute postures that you can do in sequence or one at a time.
Make this program available over a corporate website or intranet and relaxation is only a click away: Shoulders feel tight? Just click on the shoulder stretch. Neck muscles ache? Do some head and neck rolls. Mind racing and feeling stressed? Try a breathing exercise. Back starting to bother you a bit? Try imaging you were squeezing a lemon between your shoulder blades!
Now you can take an invigorating break at work that doesn’t involve caffeine, time away from your desk, or calories added to your waistline.
Includes 14 different 1-2 minute exercises:
Seated Yoga Posture
Seated Spinal Twist
Seated Lap Twist
Mini Sun Salutation
