  • 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.
