So many of us are tethered to a desk for work and posture doesn't get enough attention. If your upper back and neck are tight there are some move that can help counteract the effects of sitting for long periods.
Cat and Cow - This pose helps open up the chest and also elongate the spine.
Cobra Pose- another wonderful chest opener. If you activate your traps it can also be a great back strengthener.
Pigeon Pose - This is great for your hips and psoas. If you need support simply put a small pillow or book underneath the hip.
FIsh Pose- Heart opener and throat opener. Great for neck pain.
Crescent Moon- This can be practiced seated at your desk or standing. It's not often that our side body gets stretched but it wonder for the ribs and neck.
Camel Pose- a deep stretch for the low back and chest. It should be approached very slowly- there's no need to rush and touch your legs, the stretch is just as effective as shown in the second picture.
