You can do this pose, recommended by yoga instructor Sara Quiriconi, either standing or sitting in your chair for a quick side stretch that releases the tension in your chest and upper body.
- Stand or sit with your feet under your hips and interlace your fingers above your head with your palms toward the ceiling.
- Lengthen the right side of your torso as your lean to the left. Hold this for five seconds, then switch sides. Repeat two to three times on each side.
- You can also lift one arm at a time to focus the stretch on one side.
