Do you have sore shoulders, wrists that ache, neck pain, or just general stress? Use these simple weekly yoga postures to help you create a better day.
Just a few minutes throughout your workday will make a big difference!
As you start each stretch remember to take nice deep breaths and be aware of your body.
This is good for balance, stretching the hamstrings and other leg muscles.
Step 1: Stand straight and look forward.
Step 2: Lift your right leg and place it on your chair or desk (depending on your flexibility).
Step 3: Relax for a few breaths. Slowly bend over the leg so your torso can relax on your thigh.
Step 4: Try to bring your fingers to the toes.
Step 5: Breathe and roll your head up slowly, and then down slowly.
Step 6: Roll your body back to centre. Repeat on other side.
As you go through these postures, remember safety comes first. You might feel uncomfortable, which is natural. Pain, however, is not OK; it is your body telling you to stop.
