Office Yoga Stretch with LUNA

Luna Bar

Here at the Clif Bar headquarters, home to LUNA, we are lucky enough to have daily yoga classes. Abby, one of our yoga instructors, kept her day job as our HR manager, so she knows how hard it is to spend time sitting in your cube 5 days a week. Here’s a modified Garudasana yoga pose to keep your shoulders relaxed while working away at your desk:
  • Sit with both feet on the ground, hip-width apart.
  • Inhale; lift the crown of your head and stretch your arms out to the sides at shoulder height.
  • Exhale; cross your arms in front of your torso, right elbow on top of left elbow and bend your arms so your hands are at face height.
  • Cross your wrists pressing your left fingers into your right palm, slightly lifting your elbows and slowly breathe.
  • Release and repeat on the other side.

If your coworkers ask what you’re doing, guide them through this stretch so they’ll be as relaxed as you! To learn more about Luna, visit Namaste from your friends here at LUNA!
