Office-Friendly Yoga



Don’t let long hours at the office cause you to suffer from tight shoulders and hips or an achy lower back.

Try these three simple poses to keep you feeling positive and healthy. You can easily do them at the office, at the airport or any place with a seat.

Yoga shoulder stretch

While sitting or standing, interlace your fingers in front of you and reach your arms overhead. Inhale as you shrug your shoulders towards your ears and exhale as you gently relax the shoulders down. Hold here for 3 breath cycles and release.





Seated yoga hip opener

In your desk chair, on the train or wherever you can find a comfortable seat on the go, cross your left leg over the right thigh. Holding onto the sides of the seat, inhale as you open your chest and exhale as you fold forward over the crossed legs. Take atleast 3 breath cycles here and then repeat on the other side. Modifications: If it’s not possible to cross your leg over the thigh, start by crossing at the ankles.




Seated yoga twist for lower back release and digestion

In your desk chair or seat on the go, place your left hand on the outside of your right thigh and your right hand behind you on the seat. Inhale as you lengthen your spine, exhale as you press into both hands and open your chest towards the side wall, gazing over your shoulder. Hold for atleast 3 breath cycles and then repeat on the other side.
