Chair yoga: De-stress at your desk

De-stress at your desk with easy yoga stretches and breathing you can do anywhere – no standing required! Rebecca Keane, a yoga instructor at Thomas F. Chapman Family Cancer Wellness at Piedmont leads poses you can try any time you need a breather.

  • Sitting in a chair, place your knees hip-width apart and your feet flat on the floor.
  • Inhale as you sweep your arms overhead.
  • Feel as if you are pressing the walls apart with your hands as you exhale and release your arms to your sides.
  • Inhale, look up to the ceiling and open up your chest as you press your hands onto the tops of your thighs.
  • Exhale as you lean forward, either resting your arms on your thighs or letting your head drop between your legs.
  • With an inhale, slowly roll up to an upright position.
  • Rest your hands on your thighs, close your eyes and take a few calm breaths.
