12 Aug the health hazards of sitting
For any of my students who spend more than 20 minutes at a time sitting, here’s an infographic from the Washington Post that explains why sitting is so hard on our bodies while also giving some recommendations on how to counteract the damage.
So, take a break from sitting, stand in Tadasana, lifting the bottom of your belly while rooting your femur bones in the socket; press down through the heels, and lift from the inner arches to the inner groins. Add some shoulder rotations in both directions and Garudasana and Gomukhasana to open up the neck and shoulders.
Or, alternatively, sip enough water throughout the day. That should get up and moving on a regular basis… while keeping you hydrated.
