5 upper body stretches to unwind after a long day of working in front of the computer
Start by taking your chin to your chest and then tilt one ear towards your right shoulder. Start to roll your neck in one direction. Keep taking deep full breaths and change the direction after three full breaths.
Lateral neck stretch
Keeping your head straight, drop your right ear towards your shoulder. Now gently put your left ear on the left shoulder. You can also tilt your chin slightly up and down to get the stretch in the different parts of your neck.
Repeat this for five breaths on each side.
Seated spinal twist
Sit in vajrasana and twist to the right as your right-hand goes behind you and left-hand goes on the right knee. Take three deep breaths and repeat the same on the other side.
Sit tall in Vajrasana and raise your right arm, pointing fingers towards the sky. Now bend towards your left side while creating a length on the right ribs. Wait here for three breaths and repeat on the other side.
Sit straight on a chair or floor, as comfortable. Take your elbows towards the centre of your body. Stack the left elbow underneath and right elbow on the top.
Now take the back of your hands together, fingertips pointing towards the ceiling. Try and press your palms together, if possible.
Take three deep breaths in this pose, come back to the normal position. Repeat.
