I see students in my yoga classes and private sessions every day with some issues relating to their work in offices, whether it’s low back pain from sitting, neck and shoulder pain from hunching forward over a keyboard, wrist pain from typing or using a mouse, or some other ailment from an unfriendly desk or chair. All of this is compounded by the stress we feel in our daily lives and it leaves many of us aching from head to toe.
I can empathize. I used to spend many hours sitting at a desk and there have been times in my life when I have been a regular at the Chiropractor’s office. Since I’ve been doing yoga regularly, though, I’ve been relatively pain free. I know getting to a yoga class daily isn’t an option for everyone, so I’ve created this video for you with a few exercises you can do at your desk that will have you feeling better soon!
Making these yoga exercises a part of your routine can decrease or even eliminate body pain, fatigue and tension and increase overall muscle strength and flexibility, and can even relieve headaches.
