Do you work in an office? Or at a desk most of your day? If you do, often you may be suffering from those slumped turned in shoulders, achy joints, cramped muscles and even burning eyes! Working in this modern age has got us staring at computers, sitting and rushing around. As a result we are left with tight muscles and a tense body that is all cramped up. We need to counteract and nurture these areas daily to feel better and prevent long term problems. If you have an office body, the main areas you need to release tension are neck, shoulders, wrists, hips, hamstrings and the spine.
Start in a low lunge on both sides, focus on releasing the hips down while keeping the front knee over the ankle and stay for a few moments. From the low lunge, if it’s accessible drop to the forearms and try to settle into lizard for a few minutes on each side. Then move into lizard pose while reaching for the back ankle just like in the picture above.
Only move into this if it feels safe, listen to your body. I can take time to move into this so be patient.Back to Blog
