Last week we posted six chair yoga poses that you could perform to break up sedentary behavior during your day at work. Now, we would like to share six more poses that you could incorporate into a daily routine. These short exercises provide you with an opportunity to take a mental break, stretch your muscles, and relax your body.
Begin by performing this series of poses 3-4 times during your day. If possible, gradually increase the frequency until you are incorporating some stretching every hour. Begin each pose by taking a deep breath in, moving into the stretch as you breathe out, and then holding the stretch at your comfort level for 10-60 seconds.
