Yoga In Office: Simple Yoga Stretches For Working People

Hectic work schedules and innumerable deadlines take their toll everyday on millions of people around the world. It is no surprise that as the day progresses you feel more and more lethargic and irritable and are affected by strange aches and pains on the head, neck, back, hands or legs. These are all symptoms of stress and a lack of exercise. Unfortunately most people do not even have the time to visit a gym at the end of the day they are simply too tired.
Fortunately, all is not lost. Read on to find out how you can reduce all the stress, tiredness, aches and pains, by simply taking a couple of minutes to try our simple Yoga stretches for working people. Yoga is by far one of the most beneficial forms of exercise. These simple stretches have been adapted from Yoga techniques so that they can be performed with ease at any office or place of work. They can all be performed by using everyday office furniture as props.
Chair twists. Sit comfortable on a chair and grab the left arm of the chair with both hands. Inhale deeply and gently turn your body to the left and attempt to look over your left shoulder. Hold this position for a couple of seconds and feel your spine stretch. Return slowly to the starting position while exhaling. Repeat the movement on the right side. Chair twists help to stretch the spine and relax it.
Chair bends. This one should be done on a chair that does not have wheels. Alternatively you can use a high table or filing cabinet. Stand behind the chair (or table) and place both hands on it. Take one or two steps away from the chair. Gently bend forward from the waist until your body forms a right angle to the floor. Rest your head on your hands. Hold this position for as long as is comfortable. Breathe normally and try not to let your stomach sag. Chair bends are very beneficial for the back and abdomen. The rush of blood to the head also makes you feel energized. [phpostock]yoga stretches,2[/phpostock]
Side Bends. Stand with your feet wide apart. Slowly raise your arms above your head so that your fingertips point to the ceiling. Inhale deeply while doing so. Now slowly lean over to one side while exhaling gently. Inhale once more and slowly return to the upright position while exhaling. Repeat the movement on the other side. Side bends help to get rid of stitches on the side and are good for the back and abdominal muscles. They also help to recharge the mind.
