Is your ‘to do’ list never-ending this time of year? Are you feeling tense and anxious on the lead up to Christmas? Relax, we have a solution.

Reduce stress, tension and pain with 3 minutes of Chair Yoga.
Find yourself a comfortable seat, plant your feet firmly into the ground. Feet hip distance apart, knees bent at right angles. Sit up nice and straight and deepen your breath in and out through the nose.
NECK

Are you in the habit of holding the phone to your ear using your shoulder while typing furiously? Treat your neck to this simple stretch:

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

  • Lift your right arm up and over your head to rest lightly on your left ear.
  • Gently tilt your head to the right and use your right hand to guide your right ear towards your right shoulder.
  • Hold for 20 seconds, keep your breathing deep and expansive.
  • Release and repeat on the other side.

SHOULDERS & BACK
Have you been hunched over your keyboard all day trying to meet a deadline? Your shoulders and back will thank you for this:

  • Interlace your hands being your back. Sit up nice and tall.
  • Squeeze your shoulder blades towards each other to open up through the shoulders.
  • Keep your head and neck in line with the rest of the spine.
  • Hold this stretch for 20 seconds and then slowly hinge forward and lift your hands up towards the sky.
  • Hold the forward bend for 20 seconds.
  • Slowly sit back up and release the hands.

HIPS & HAMSTRINGS
Feel like you’re chained to your desk? Long periods sitting can tighten hips and hamstrings which can often lead to lower back pain.  Try this easy release without having to leave your desk:

  • Keep your left foot planted into the ground, 90 degree bend through your knee.
  • Straighten your right leg out in front, flex your toes back towards you.
  • Rest both hands onto your left knee, sit up straight.
  • Tilt your pelvis forward, lead with your chest and slowly lower your torso towards your right thigh. Hold for 20 seconds.
  • Release and repeat on the other side.
Share this with your friends, family and colleagues if you feel they need a stress relieving time out!
TIP: Watch out for chairs with wheels, you don’t want them to take off on you! You can always put back of the chair against a wall or your desk to keep them stable.
