Caught stretching at your desk? You’re following the latest trend.
Have you been staring at your computer screen about two hours too long? Are your wrists stiffening up and ‘on fire,’ just like that image in the Advil commercial? When you move your shoulders, does it feel like you are trying to lift rocks?
Maybe it’s time for you to try some office yoga. Yoga has become such a popular form of exercise for our North American culture, it is inevitable that it has crept, or perhaps downward-dogged its way into the workplace.
Yoga is known for its great stretching techniques and for promoting a sense of well-being, and it is excellent exercise for office workers who need a break to stretch their backs, arms, and necks. It also eases stress from deadlines and conflicts at work.
