Since I sit in front of a computer most of the time, stretching and breathing become very important breaks for me. Here are three of my favourite poses for stress, neck and shoulder relief as well as mind clarity. All photos are sourced from PocketSports.
1. Standing Forward Bend (Deep) with Shoulder Opener
Tips: Do not squeeze the shoulders together, but let the shoulders drop to the ground. This way, you can relax the tension on your neck and shoulder. Great for those who sit in front of the computers a lot.
2. Tripod Headstand
Tips: The key is not to force your head onto the ground – whatever height you are comfortable with your head, let it be. Allow your head to hang free. This pose brings mental clarity especially after a long day of brain work.
3. Wide Child Pose
