Work DeskYou do not need a huge amount of room to do simple yoga moves. You just need your desk and these exercises!

Backbend 

Simply sit tall in your chair, take a deep breath, and reach your arms to the ceiling. Exhale and lower your arms. Hold and repeat.

Seated Twist 

Sit with your legs straight forward in your chair. Use your arms to twist your upper body from side to side slowly while keeping your legs stationary.

Shoulder Opener 

Stand straight up facing your desk. Bend at the waist, placing your hands on the desk in front of you flat. Hold the position for ten breaths and return to standing position.

Wrist Release 

Bend your wrists in both directions with the opposing hand. Push your fingers to the inside of your wrist while holding your arms out straight. Hold for a few breaths, then relax.

Forward Fold 

Stand away from your desk and stand up straight. Bend at the waist, letting your shoulders and head hang down with gravity. Hold for five to ten breaths before slowly standing up straight, using each vertebra as a check.

Hip Opener 

Sit in the chair in a normal cross-legged position. However, make sure that your ankle is directly on top of your knee. Breathe in and fold your upper body forward slowly as you exhale the breath. Hold for a few breaths and change legs.

Hamstring Stretch 

Sit on the edge of your chair with another chair out in front of you. Put one leg at a time on the other chair and bend forward to stretch the hamstring.
