“Stretching at your desk can engage your abdominals, bring energy, and be very calming,” said Jennifer Grims, an instructor atYogamaya studio in New York City.
We asked Grims to come up with eight moves that pretty much anyone can do at work, without any special equipment, all while seated at a desk. We repeat: You do not have to be a yogi (or even get out of your chair) to do these moves and reap their benefits. These stretches can energize, de-stress, and help you achieve optimum Om in the office. They won’t add up to a strenuous workout, so feel free to repeat ’em anytime you need a pick-me-up.
