Take a Breath of Fresh Air

Yoga Pose

Standing Backbend

Do This Pose: Stand tall with your feet an inch or two from the front of your desk (or a wall, countertop, or the back of a chair). Place your fingertips on your desk. Tuck your tailbone strongly in and up, and lean your hips into the desk. Press your fingertips down and with each inhale lift your spine upward, creating length for your low back. Remember to draw your shoulder blades away from your neck. Feel your chest expanding upward and outward, and drinking up each deep breath it receives. To come out, use your fingertips to press your hips away from the desk. Repeat 2-3 times.
