Ah, work. There is really nothing like sitting all day on your ass, your legs awkwardly crossed beneath you, your torso twisted to the side, your neck bent downwards, to make you feel all light and perky. I mean, to make you feel 100 years old. Sitting is killing you, you know. Luckily, there are a few things you can do to stretch out, loosen up, and limber up, to make you feel a little less achey breaky. Here are 5 easy yoga poses you can do right at your desk. And if anyone looks at you funny, just tell them they are dying, and you're not!
This is like the base line of yoga postures. You really can't have a yoga practice without it. Plant your feet and hands about four feet apart and bend over, with your butt high in the air and your head pointed downwards. Try to get your back as straight as possible. This is really great for stretching out the kinks in your spine.
