BrokerLink Health and Wellness segment – Desk Yoga Pose #5

Sep 9, 2014 1 minute read

What do cats and cows have in common?  They’re yoga poses that help stretch our back and shoulders.

Steve from BrokerLink suggests these poses to help reduce the tension from spending too much time sitting at a desk and working on a computer.  For a “cat” pose, place your hands on the top of your thighs and tuck your chin towards your chest. Gently roll yourself down towards your chest. Hold for up to five counts and repeat as necessary.

For a “cow” pose, Steve recommends gently squeezing  your shoulder blades together (or as Steve shows below, pull your arms away at shoulder level) and gently arch your back. Hold for up to five counts and repeat.

How do you like our desk yoga so far?  Be sure to let us know.
