Chair yoga: 6 movements of the spine

Are you stressed at work? Try these six simple stretches to alleviate tension-- from the convenience of your desk. 

Mary Beth Kealy, a yoga instructor at Thomas F. Chapman Family Cancer Wellness at Piedmont, leads this gentle chair yoga session to promote relaxation and lengthen the spine. 

"You can do it any time," says Kealy. "Just make sure you are in a comfortable chair. Have your back supported, put feet on the floor, and sit nice and tall. Now you can work on the triangle of tension that we have in our head, neck and shoulders."
