Yoga poses to relieve and realign after a long day of sitting at a desk
Our bodies are not meant to be stationary for 8, 10, 12 hours a day. Not only does it decrease life expectancy, but it also creates constant tension in the muscles with only minute adjustments in position, so there is virtually no movement. Our bodies are meant to move! It is obvious that cardio- running, swimming, and cycling will get your muscles healthy and toned, and yoga will certainly lengthen and stretch your compressed neck, shoulders, spine and lower back, as well as open tight hips from sitting in a chair for extended hours.
