Desk Yoga

Reverse Prayer Desk Yoga Pose
This pose corrects posture and opens the chest. It can help to relieve carpal ligament pain by stretching the wrists and exercising the surrounding muscles.
Continual practice of this controlled breathing exercise can alleviate stress and increase breath control during other cardiovascular activities.
Open up your airways and improve your sitting position with this simple stretch. It will also help you if you suffer from carpal tunnel, which is common among people who sit at a desk all day.
Chair Cat and Cow
Neck Stretch
Alternate Nostril Breathing Technique
Chair Cat and Cow Desk Yoga Pose
Neck Stretch Desk Yoga Pose
Alternate Nostril Breathing Technique
You may already be familiar with this classic yoga pose. This Desk Yoga version is the same stretch that has been adapted for an office setting. If you have a lot of tension built up in your neck you might experience some pain when first going through the motions of this stretch. This breathing exercise will help undo some of the physical and emotional stress of the work week. It's also great for built up congestion.
 Chair Eagle Pose
Seated Leg Exercise
Sitting Cow Face Pose
Modified Eagle Pose  Seated Leg Cross Yoga Pose   Sitting Cow Face Yoga Pose
Typically, this yoga stretch, known as an eagle pose, is done standing up and it involves using your legs. But, in keeping with our Desk Yoga series, we have modified this pose for the office by using just the arms.  This seated leg exercise has been modified to be done while sitting in a chair at work. It is a particularly great stretch for opening up the hips and increasing flexibility in the legs.  This yoga pose can be a little bit difficult to get into, especially if your arms aren't quite flexible enough to reach each other behind your back or you carry a lot of tension in your shoulders. 
 Upper Body Stretch
Spinal Twist Yoga Pose
Seated Hamstring Stretch
Upper Body Stretch Yoga Pose Spinal Twist Yoga Pose Jessica Kellner Demonstrating the Hamstring Stretch Yoga Pose
This is a wonderful stretch for our upper bodies, which can become extra strained after sitting hunched over a desk all day.
Today's stretch is a spinal twist that's a modification of the "lord of the fishes" pose. It's a side-to-side stretch that helps increase balance and agility. You will feel the benefits of this seated hamstring stretch through the back of your leg, into the glutes and up the small of your back.
