Long days, a mountain of deadlines and hours of sitting or standing, can take your stress up to astronomical levels and send your body out of whack.
Fortunately, a quick yoga break at your desk can bust that stress and bring your inner calm back in a snap. We tend to store tension in the neck and shoulders, round in our posture and get tight in the hips, especially when we sit too much. This sequence will address your entire body's tension and leave you feeling less stressed and better able to take on your workday and life.
As you move through these poses, remember to breathe deeply. When you inhale, breathe in calm and when you exhale, breathe out that stress. Enjoy!
