Yoga at Your Desk

Do your neck and shoulders get tight and painful from working at a desk all day?

Mine too!

That is why I made you this quick 5 min video with easy yoga stretches you can do at your desk in 5 mins.

On day 26 of our 30 day new year yoga challenge we are going to take 5 minutes to stretch out your tight neck and shoulders. If you have neck and shoulder pain from sitting at your desk, working at an office, working long hours on a computer or a laptop, then you are going to love this short five minute yoga video for neck and shoulders. This 5 minute yoga video is designed for you to do right in your chair at your desk or in your office. It is super short and easy. It will help you get into your neck and shoulder pain, tightness and stiffness from working at a desk and a computer.

I am going to take you through 2 of my favourite yoga poses for tight and painful neck and shoulders. These are simple yoga exercises you can do while you are sitting at your desk at work. It is super quick and easy, but effective. You will leave with a sense of ease, relaxation, and sense of well being. Not only will your neck and shoulders feel less painful but your mind will even feel more quiet and you will feel less stressed after taking these five minutes.

Ok, let’s do my favourite yoga neck and shoulder shoulder stretches at your desk right now πŸ™‚

Eagle Arms

Take your right arm out in front, hook your left arm underneath it and wrap it all the way around until your palms touch.
To modify you can bring the backs of your hands together, or bring your elbows, lower arms and palms together or give yourself a big hug.
For less lower down and in, for more lift up and out.

Hold for five breaths.

Eagle Arms releases tension between your shoulder blades, loosens shoulders and wrists.

Neck Release

Lower your left ear to your left shoulder. Breathe and hold for 5 breaths. This will relieve stress and tension that causes pain in your neck.

Eagle Arms on the other Side

Take your left arm out in front, hook your right arm underneath it and wrap it all the way around until your palms touch.
To modify you can bring the backs of your hands together, or bring your elbows, lower arms and palms together or give yourself a big hug.
For less lower down and in, for more lift up and out.

Hold for five breaths.

Deep breathing in eagle arms will reduce stress and blood pressure. It will also help to relieve your body of aches and pains. Deep breathing promotes better blood flow, releases toxins from your body and helps you to relax.

Neck Release on the other Side

Lower your right ear to your left shoulder. Breathe and hold for 5 breaths. Notice how breathing and stretching your neck has a positive impact on your state of mind. Notice how it is releasing stress and helping your whole body to relax. Notice how your mind is becoming more quiet and you are experiencing an increased sense of well being from taking these few moments to stretch.
