We don’t know about you, but sometimes if we don’t have time for a full yoga practice, we find it is easy to skip it altogether. Often life becomes hectic and you simply can’t make it onto the mat as frequently as you’d like. Don’t throw in the proverbial towel, instead shift your perspective to seeing how a quickie practice is better than none. We’ve got some great classes to help you squeeze in some yoga on your lunch or workday break. Even a few minutes a day will help you maintain your flexibility, strength, and mental focus.
Depending upon the type of work you do, you may need to counteract the effects of sitting at a desk for hours or standing on your feet.
Here’s what a quick break can do if you’ve been sitting too long: open up your spine from tailbone to crown, loosen your shoulders, and release your hip flexors. Sitting for long periods can compress your spine and leave you vulnerable to back pain. If you’ve re-read the last sentence on the document you’re working on five times and it still doesn’t make sense that means you need a break. In as little as five minutes, you can change how you are feeling and find clarity.
If you stand or are active during the day, you also need to hit the reset button and make sure to get off your feet and recharge. With the right mini-practice, you’ll increase your stamina and ability to stay focused on the job at hand.
What we love about these quick classes is they allow you to maintain your regular practice when you are short on time.
A little effort reaps great rewards. No more excuses! Enjoy these four excellent practices that are designed to create productive, happy, and healthy workdays. Whether your need to move your body, want to improve your focus and concentration, need some de-stressing from your to-do list, or simply want to add some healthy habits in the midst of your routine, these classes are ideal. Add one, or all of them into your routine.
