Wednesday #Yoga: Unleash Creativity at Work

Mid-week often brings a creative block, but there is little point waiting for that great idea to emerge as if by magic, instead free your creativity with some yoga.

Chair Forward Fold* stretches the spine, and reduces stress: Start in Chair Mountain, and with an exhalation hinge forward from the hips, taking your hands, eye gaze, and head, down towards the floor. Rest your chest on your thighs, and place your hands on the floor either side of your feet. Stay in this position for 3-5 breaths, and transport your mind away from your desk to a scenic environment; to a place where you feel at one with your inner being, with the space that allows you to create. Imagine relaxing by a waterfall, and as the water cascades, your ideas pour into your mind. Release slowly out of the pose on an inhalation.

 

 

* If you suffer with any medical conditions i.e. back/neck injuries, high/low blood pressure, or eye-related issues, then it is advised that you check with a medical professional before doing any exercise.
