What is Desk Yoga?

Work can be stressful. Heavy workload, deadlines, your boss, clients, not to mention sitting for prolonged periods of the day. This all has a negative effect on your health and well being.

Studies show people with sedentary lifestyles sit for an average of 13 hours a day. Which leads to poor posture, joint issues and an array of other health problems.  No wonder we feel stiff and stressed out.

Desk Yoga is designed for you to take a few minutes out of your working day to stretch, clear your mind and come back feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and more productive.

We start each sequence with a simple meditation. Closing your eyes and focusing on your breath has huge mental benefits by improving circulation of blood and carrying nutrients to the brain.  We move through gentle postures to open the hips, hamstrings and upper back which are constantly shortening while sitting.

Whether you’re a seasoned Yogi or can’t even touch your toes, desk yoga is for you. Dedicating time for yourself throughout the day will give you more clarity and creativity, with ability to solve problems quicker and reduce stress levels.
