What it is: Seated Twist pose is a great pose that students can do right at their desk. It provides a great quick mind break, especially if students have been sitting for long periods, such as during finals week.
Why we love it: This pose doesn’t require any equipment, so it can be done anywhere, anytime. It stretches the shoulders, joints and spine, and helps increase mobility and flexibility.
How to do it:
Our amaZEN U video demos a chair with this pose, but you could just as easily do it on the floor. Students will relish the upper body stretch, and you’ll love the minimal interruption to the lesson or task at hand.
