  • Do you have sore shoulders, wrists that ache, neck pain, or just general stress? Use these simple weekly yoga postures to help you create a better day.

  • Just a few minutes throughout your workday will make a big difference! As you start each stretch remember to take nice deep breaths and be aware of your body.

    As you go through these postures, remember safety comes first. You might feel uncomfortable, which is natural, pain, however, is not OK. It is your body telling you to stop.

  • This exercise strengthens and tones your upper body and arms. It also opens your chest, lungs, and hips as well as tones your chin and neck.
