Desk Yoga: Chair Cat and Cow (Video)

Release tension in the upper back and improve flexibility with this seated variation of the classic cat and cow yoga pose. 

By Jessica Kellner

Sitting at a desk all day can harm our posture, and in turn, our health. Join Jessica Kellner, the Editor-in-Chief of Mother Earth Living magazine, for a few minutes of rest and relaxation as she guides you through a new, office-friendly yoga stretch.

Today's position is called "chair cat and cow." You may already be familiar with "cat and cow," a classic yoga pose. This Desk Yoga position is simply a version of the same stretch that has been adapted for an office setting. It will help eliminate stiffness in the upper back, a common symptom among people who sit in a desk all day long. Use your natural breath as a guide to help you ease into the pattern of this stretch, and play with the tempo to either improve your breathing or increase your flexibility.
