In this day and age, most of the job and business professionals have a sedentary lifestyle that requires at least 9-10 hours of continuous sitting. And due to high work pressure, they think twice before getting up from their work desk.
Moreover, sitting all day on desk also has adverse effects on your health. It badly affects your backbone and even causes weight gain. According to a study, people who have a sitting job for 5 years continuously experience a lowered life expectancy.
So to undo this damage, you should start practicing these 7 yoga poses everyday for a healthier lifestyle.
1. Vrikshasana (Tree Pose)
Practise vrikshasana daily to strengthen your leg muscles and backbone. Maintain the pose for not more than 30-60 seconds.
2. Tadasana (Standing Yoga Pose)
This pose helps you free up tight chest muscles and have a powerful back. Take a comfortable standing position with keeping feet and hips width apart. Now bring your hands over your head with palms facing forward. Breathing deeply, bend gently backwards.
3. Supta Udarakarshanasana (Sleeping Abdominal Stretch Pose)
This pose lets you destress and opens up the stiff backbone. It also stretches your abdomen muscle.
4. Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward Facing Dog Pose)
This pose especially helps in improving the flexibility of backbone and also strengthens it.
5. Virabhadrasana (Warrior Pose)
