Have a Sedentary Lifestyle and looking for Yoga Poses that can combat the effects of whole day sitting desk job?

Yoga is super helpful if you spend a lot of time sitting around. It gets your body moving and stretches out muscles that might get tight from sitting too much. Plus, it helps with things like posture and flexibility, which can suffer if you’re stuck in a chair all day.

  1. VRIKSHASANA
  2. TRIKONASANA
  3. PĀDA-HASTĀSANA
  4. ARDHA-CHAKRASANA
  5. VAJRASANA 
  6. GOMUKHASANA
  7. USHTRASANA
  8. BALASANA
  9. SHALABHASANA
  10. SETU BANDHASANA
  11. PAVANMUKTASANA
  12. REST IN SHAVASANA

Yoga also helps calm your mind and reduces stress, which is awesome for anyone dealing with the pressures of a sedentary lifestyle. So basically, it’s like a total body and mind workout that can balance out all the sitting you do.
