Workplace Stretches from Beth Tascione, Yoga Instructor

Does your upper back ache or your neck feel stiff after sitting in front of the computer for a while? Here are 2 quick and easy stretches you can do right at your desk to relieve those aches, improve your posture and your breathing.

Beth Tascione, Yoga Instructor

1) Sit up nice and tall at the edge of yoru chair - both feet on the ground, sitting bones anchoring into your chair, crown of your head reaching up to the sky. Clasp your hands behind your back, reach your arms gently downward and toward the back edge of yoru chair, draw your shoulders blades together and lift your heart up to the sky. Feel the opening of your chest and breathe deeply into the space you've created in your chest and ribs. Stay for 3 - 5 breaths and then release your clasping.

2) Remain sitting up nice and tall, enjoy the opening you've created in the front of your body. Breathe in deeply and as you exhale drop your right ear toward your right shoulder. You can take your right arm over your head and place your hand by your left jaw and gentle draw your ear closer toward your shoulder. Stay for 3 - 5 breaths. The carefully turn your head downward to look at the outside of your right hip. Move your right hand to the back of your skull and gently guide your head downward. Try not to collapse your chest or round your upper back. Stay for 3 -5 breaths. Slowly bring your head up and turn it back to center and repeat to the other side.

Sexy Body, Sexy Back

Thought that would get your attention, but if you want one you must improve your posture. Standing and sitting up straight will do wonders for your back as well as your social life.

Healthy Eating Tips from Lisa Neilsen, Health Coach

Eat Less, Play More

Lisa Neilsen, Health Coach

As adults we seem to have lost our instinct to prioritize play. In our busy world, with its emphasis on work and responsibility, to be healthy and balanced we must work on more than just our bodies; we must feed our hearts, minds and spirits.

Remember when you were a child and you got so wrapped up in playing, imagining or creating that you didn't want to stop when it was time to eat? Do you remember leaving...read more
