Yoga@Work #10 – Fundamentals of Pranayama (Breathe)
This session begins our specific focus upon the breathe. The study of the breathe in yoga is know as Pranayama and is consider a development from the study of poses which are know as asana. Pranayama is both more subtle and more powerful than asana. It deals directly with our nervous system.
Yoga@Work #6 – Opening the Shoulders
This session looks at opening the shoulders while seated. The two main arm positions are called Garudasana (eagle pose) and Gomakasana (Cow face pose). These are fantastic poses for when you have been at your computer and will help greatly in relieving shoulder and neck stiffness, aiding concentration and preventing tension headaches. No yoga equipment required.
Yoga@Work #3 – Fundamentals of Sitting
We sit a lot but often not very well. This short session looks at how to condition yourself to sit more upright. Simply sitting better will have dramatic effects on your overall health. Muscle/skeletal problems, digestion, respiration, circulation, all improve. So too concentration, energy and mood are all likely to improve. No ‘Yoga’ equipment required.
Short Dynamic Practice
This is a dynamic practice. Based around Surya Namaskara (Sun Salutes)this a great way to get your body moving in both flexion and extension. Particularly useful as a regular morning practice. This does not contain headstand, handstand or shoulder but still possibly a little strong if you have injuries or physical restrictions. 20 minutes

Pranayama – Ujjayi and Antara Kumbhaka
Ujjayi is a slow deep breath, the foundation of Pranayama. Antara Kumbhaka is the brief retention (holding) of the inhalation. This practice will sooth your nerves and help with anxiety as well as bring energy if you are feeling physically and mentally depleted.
