Yoga For Those Who Sit All Day

Sitting for longer duration on chair can lead to a whole slew of problems including back pain and reduced mobility. It is also associated with higher heart attack, metabolic syndrome, obesity and type 2 diabetes risk as well as earlier overall death. But for anyone with a desk job, sitting all day is hard to avoid.

This calls for regaining full mobility in the hip joints and as well as the hip flexor muscles that shorten and tighten while sitting. Starting with core work to switch on the abdominal muscles, one should practice Sun Salutations (surya namaskara) with deep lunges and activate the legs. To enhance hip functioning, seated hip openers, standing hip openers and supine (lying) hip openers need to be pacticed regularly.
