You may think yoga is only for those who carry a mat on a brisk walk to the local yoga studio or for the retired folk that meet in the shady spot in the park on Thursday afternoons. However, plenty of people are getting into this fabulous form of exercise because of the great benefits it can provide – greater flexibility, increased fat burning, and a sure-fire stress reliever. You may still think that it’s not for you – but you don’t have to be a total “yogi” to get the benefits.

Check out this modification on the Sun Salutation. Easily done at your desk during the workday or in a straight-backed chair in the comfort of your own home. You can repeat the routine as many times as you’d like, but 2-3 times is plenty if you’re looking for some basic stretching and a change of pace for your workday. As you go through the moves make sure to breathe in and out, push only as far as the stretch feels “comfortable” or “good” (pushing too hard will only injure your muscles), and forget about the pressures that surround you. The best part – you won’t hardly break a sweat.
