Simple Yoga Stretches To Help Undo The Damage Of Sitting All Day

Namaste your way to pain relief.

It's pretty incredible how a few simple twists and movements can help relieve the physical tension from a day spent sitting.

If you're like most Americans, you're compelled by work, your commute and a whole host of other factors to spend most of your time with your butt in a chair. This sedentary position can wreak havoc on your body, but yoga can help.

In the video above from the experts at Udaya, yoga instructor Rudy Mettia will lead you through a sequence of simple bends and twists that will feel really nice on your back, arms and legs. Throughout these moves you should feel stretching, but any pain is a sign that you need to slow down or make an adjustment to the positioning.

A yogi of any level can perform these simple moves, so don't fret if you're just getting back into your routine.
