DESK YOGA | RELEASE
LEVEL 0-1 • 21m
Need a quick work break to calm the mind and release your body? This class opens with mindful breathing, before moving into stretches to mobilise the neck, shoulders, spines, hips and hamstrings. This session also gives you a chance to activate the glutes and core, which are inactive when sat at a desk, causing spinal discomfort for many people. We finish with a very simple breath-work to find clarity, calm the mind and reduce stress and anxiety.
Equipment: Chair and Desk
