Day by day errands—like sitting at a work area for extended periods can negatively affect your body and leave you feeling tight and kinked. These simple yoga moves can come in handy when you need to get some blood flowing and feel a good stretch. When you do them routinely, you reestablish the body to its most ideal state and expel strain. The outcome: a progressively loose, adjusted you.
Start with your legs together and toes tucked. Gradually lower your hips back and down until your butt is laying on your heels. Entwine fingers and flip palms so they are pointing outward; at that point stretch your arms straight overhead. Let go of your total body weight all the way down onto your heels for the full benefit.
Supported Wide-Leg Forward Fold
Stand slightly behind a horizontally placed block at its low or medium height with feet on either side. Step your feet out wide into a straddle stance with your heels on the same plane and your feet parallel to each other. Take your hands to your hips, and on an inhale, look up toward the ceiling. As you exhale, fold forward from the hips with a long spine, lowering hands to touch the ground. See if the crown of your head can come to the block, raising the block, lowering it down, or adding another block until it is under your head.
Lunge with armpit clearing
From Downward Dog, step your right foot forward between your hands; at that point let your left knee down onto your mat. Ensure your right knee is aligned over the correct heel, making a 90-degree point in the knee. Gently rest your right armpit straightforwardly over the correct knee, twist your right elbow, and make a clench hand with your right hand. Utilizing your correct kneecap as a device, rub your correct armpit by making circles, clockwise and afterward counterclockwise, around the knee.
Prayer Hands Shoulder Stretch
Kneel with knees together, and place a block between your feet on the low or medium horizontal level. Sit on the block, keeping your feet hugged close to it. Bring your hands behind you to the middle of your back, and press your palms together, creating a prayer shape. Try to get your whole hands pressing equally into each other.

I personally love this move! Rest your body pointing faceup with knees bent and feet placed on the mat. Pressing feet firmly, lift your hips straight up; at that point slide one or two stacked, horizontal squares (at their lowest height), resting under your sacrum. Keep your head and shoulders on the floor alongside arms at sides and palms facing faceup, then bring your right knee into your chest, and then follow with the left knee. Next, stretch the two legs straight up and keep your feet flexed for a proper close to this pose.
