Break Out Of The Slump!

Do you spend most of your day hunched over a computer? Let's break out of the slump and create more energy and vitality in your body with backbends! I know, backbends can sound a bit daunting, but the good news is...resistance is a natural part of releasing old habits and stepping into the unfamiliar, so be easy on yourself.  

Here’s a suggestion for incorporating backbends into your daily life.
Start by keeping it short and sweet.

Try doing small backbends throughout the day at work... 
**See bottom of page for caution.

1. Sitting towards the edge of your chair, clasp your hands around each side of the chair behind you.

2. Straighten your arms and draw the shoulders down away from your ears.

3. Pull the shoulder blades together and lift your heart.

4. Chin stays level or option to look up slightly.
Breathe and enjoy. Backbends can help you to feel more energized and uplifted... It can be that easy!
