Quick and Effective – Yoga at your Workdesk

Work can most times be unnerving and tiring due to stress or due to the fact that you sit on one spot for hours. Doing a few quick yoga can help relieve you of all stress, depression and muscle ache.

Here are 3 simple and effective yoga sequences:

Seated Crescent Moon Pose

When hunched over your desk, the body is in an unfavorable position which leads to neck, shoulder and back pain. The seated crescent moon pose helps you stretch your muscles and spine, relieving you of all pain and discomfort.

Raise your arms up over your head and stretch your fingers out. Lean to the right, taking three to four deep breaths. Do this for the left side too, taking another three to four deep breaths.

Wrist and Finger Stretches

Writing and typing for a long time can can cause your hand to become sour, which can lead to decreased efficiency and depression. Stretching the hand once every two hours helps ease the tension by allowing more blood circulation.

Sit and Stand Chair Pose

Sitting on your chair all day does more harm than good to your body. This causes tension to build up in your gluteal and hamstring muscle. To ease this tension, it is advisable to do the sit and stand chair pose by pressing down from your heels from the sitted position without moving your feet in towards the chair, making your way to standing. Now,  slowly go back to the sitting position. Do this five to ten times.

With these, you can be assured of enjoyable work hours with no complaints of body ache.
