Feel better at work in 5 minutes a day. Doctors and physical therapists agree: taking regular breaks at work will improve your posture and help you feel good in your body. Try one segment in the morning and one in the afternoon to soothe muscle tension, boost circulations, and refresh your energy.
Registered yoga therapist Sienna Smith offers her seasoned approach to doing yoga at your desk. You’ll learn to: improve your posture while sitting and standing, dissolve tension at the base of your neck and shoulders, release hip tightness that contributes to low-back pain, open the carpal tunnel with finger and wrist exercises and reduce stress and refresh your nervous system by increasing circulation.

Certified instructor description:
Fifteen different yoga and athletic stretch moves — simple stress-busters that you can do at your desk. It's easy. You can watch the moves on your computer monitor, or just learn the exercises to use whenever it's convenient. Even your boss will love it — each sequence takes less than two minutes (and is sure to boost your productivity...). Some routines are slightly modified versions of traditional yoga poses, like mountain or warrior (e.g. with your legs straddling the chair). Other moves are office-specific discomfort relievers like "wrist roll and shake" or "jaw and neck release." Exercises include both standing and seated positions. ©2012.
