Yoga Anywhere

Dana Wilkosz

Research has shown that a little stretching in the midafternoon boosts energy levels, improves your flexibility, and relieves tension in your neck, back, and wrists. We asked New York City–based yoga instructor Nicole Lynne Hooley to share three simple moves that can be done at home or in the office.

SEATED CAT COW

For neck and spine: Sit back with your knees hip-width apart and aligned over your ankles. Place your palms on your knees, then inhale through your nose as you arch your back and look toward the ceiling. Exhale and return to starting position, bringing your chin toward your chest. Repeat five times.

SEATED TWIST

For back pain: Sit near the edge of a chair and lift your arms above your head as you inhale deeply through your nose. As you exhale through your nose, twist to the right, holding onto the armrest or the back of your chair. Stay in this position for three to five breaths, then inhale through your nose as you return to starting position with your arms above your head. Repeat on the opposite side.

SEATED FORWARD FOLD

For fatigue and anxiety: Sit in the middle of a chair and inhale deeply as you reach your arms behind your back and grab each elbow with the opposite hand (or clasp your hands together if you can’t reach your elbows). Exhale through your nose and fold forward, resting your head between your knees. Hold for five to 10 deep breaths.

  1. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you
    knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter
    updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time
    and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like
    this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog
    and I look forward to your new updates.

  2. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more
    than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable
    and everything. However think about if you added some great visuals or videos to give your posts more,
    “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this blog could definitely be
    one of the very best in its niche. Good blog!

    Greetings, There’s no doubt that your web site could possibly be having web browser
    compatibility problems. Whenever I take a look at your site in Safari,
    it looks fine but when opening in I.E., it’s got some overlapping issues.
    I simply wanted to give you a quick heads up!

    Other than that, great site!
