Hi, I’m Manish Pole and this is Neetu Singh, we are part of Total Yoga. In this series of Yoga House tutorials we are looking at Desktop Yoga and specifically what can be done for the back to counter the effects of sitting at the desk for very long. Sit cross legged and holding your knee and the armrest turn around and look at the back. Breathing is normal. After 15 seconds come back to center and cross your leg the other way, lock your elbow, twist and look at the back. Stretch as much as is comfortable for you. Remember that you are.
Are twisting, and don’t turn the chair and think that you are twisting, and say that you body are twisting. For the standing stretch, see that one hand is on the opposite shoulder and holding the hip start to twist the back. Even a simple movement like this goes a long way in ensuring that your central nervous system functions optimally. Change to the other side. Ensure that there is no stiffness in the back, especially if you are sitting 78 hours at your work station. See to it that the back is kept flexed. So in this tutorial.
We saw what could be done in terms of spinal twisting. Most people would start working sitting like this and as the day proceeds they will then end up working on their desktop or laptop like this which means over a course of few years gets extremely unfit. So we’ve seen what we could do with twisting of the spine. In the next tutorial we are going to look at how we can give the other range of motion to the spine. Keep watching Yoga House tutorials.
