Padmasana Or Lotus Pose
This simple, virtually effortless yoga asana can be done for a few quick minutes in an empty meeting room, or the lawn beside your workplace. Easy as it might seem, you’d be surprised to learn the benefits this asana can bring to your body, that range from opening up your hips and stretching the ankles, to increasing awareness and unwinding your brain.
Uttanasana Or Full Forward Bend Pose
Okay, you don’t have to go all the way if you aren’t particularly flexible. In fact, the key to all Yoga asanas lies in giving it your best shot. A few quick minutes of this yoga pose can be done in a relatively small space, like your office washroom for instance. And those few minutes will go a long way in stimulating your liver, kidneys and digestive system, stretching your hamstrings, calves and hips, as well as relieving fatigue and headaches.
Baddha Konasana Or Butterfly Pose
This yoga asana has been found to be linked with a number of health benefits, and is easy to do on virtually any flat surface, including the bench outside your office. It’s great for your abdominal organs, bladder, kidneys, heart and circulation. Like that wasn’t enough, this quick yoga asana also does a brilliant job at stretching your lower half muscles like knees and thighs, and has proven to boost mental health and energy levels.
Navasana Or Boat Pose
Okay, so this one is a bit trickier than the rest of the lot, but one that can bring along a host of improvements to your physical health in a relatively short period of time. So we’d suggest you snag an empty room in the office when you see one, and get into the full boat pose. Some of the benefits of a couple of minutes of Navasana include toning and strengthening of the spine and the abdominal muscles, stretching your hamstrings and relieving any sore spots on the legs, and stimulating the kidneys, thyroid glands and your intestines.
