Relieve Aches with Vinyasa at Your Desk! Part 3 Desk Yoga Series

It’s time to add some flowing movements into your Desk Yoga Series. This sequence is really fun! It will open up your heart and lungs as you invite graceful flowing movements to awaken your body and mind.

Not only will we stretch and lengthen the crunched and hunched parts of your desk-ridden body, but we’ll begin to build some strength too, allowing fresh blood flow into your muscles as your brain floods with endorphins.

Follow along with me!
