12 Yoga Poses for Your Workday
Break Free of Afternoon Stress
Do This Pose: Stand with your feet about 4 feet apart. For support, stand against your desk or a wall. Turn your left foot slightly in and turn your right leg all the way out so that your right foot points to the right. Inhaling, stretch your arms wide apart, and with a deep long exhale bend to your right over your hips, elongating your torso to the right. Place your right hand on right leg and lift your left arm up toward the ceiling.
Feel your legs, hips, spine and arms stretching and breaking free from built-up tension! If your neck is comfortable, turn your head and look up towards the ceiling. To come out of the pose, lift your left arm strongly upward to help lift your spine up. Change your legs and repeat to the left.
