Think Yoga is just another new age trendy thing that annoying people do? Think again! We all know that women love it, but when a woman hears that a man does yoga, they will assume all kinds of wonderful things about you. They’ll think you’re in touch with the earth, in touch with your body, and an all around sensitive human. Yea, we know. Probably not the case. Still. Aside from the courting benefits of yoga, it is actually incredibly healthy for your body. It may not get you ripped, but it will improve your flexibility. Hey, that counts for something right?
Do you spend a lot of your day sitting down? Maybe you work at an office, or maybe you’re in school and spend hours seated in the classroom and in front of your computer. If so, your posture is probably a mess, and you may experience some lower back and hip pain. This video shows a stretch you can do from any chair at your convenience. It takes less than 2 minutes and will make your life better. No matter where you are or what you are doing.
All you have to do is cross your foot over the opposite leg, lean forward and breathe. Do the same thing on the other side, and repeat. Obviously, it won’t replace your gym workout or evening run, but it’s always good to take a breather and pay attention to something other than a computer screen. If you’re interested in more exercises like this, check out the side panel on this video. There are plenty of 2-minute office yoga videos for your enjoyment. Not only will you be a bit more flexible and stretched out – you’ll be able to say “I do yoga.” Plus, the chick in the video is sorta cute. WATCH HERE!
