Call the authorities!

The Daily Doodle: Give me coffee and give me prana. It's yoga at the office! Use a desk, counter, conference table, or chair-back for these moves. Hold each for 3-5 long breaths, or 30 seconds.

Press into your hands, draw your heart towards the ceiling, keep the back and front of your neck long. 

Keep your arms straight, let your heart fall towards the floor, keep your neck in line with the rest of your spine.

Spinal Twist
Use the hand behind you to keep your spine lifted and as you twist keep your neck comfortable. Repeat on both sides. 

Face your toes forward, straighten your legs, and stabilize your hips. Lengthen your spine towards the desk and drop your heart towards the floor. Keep your neck in line with your spine. Repeat on both sides.

Side Stretch
Press into the desk to lift up and over, keeping both side bodies as long as possible. Repeat on both sides. 

Heart Opener
Actively press into the desk as you lift your chest. Keep your legs active and your tail pointing towards the floor. 

Deep Hamstring and Back Stretch
Flex your foot towards your face. First lengthen and straighten your spine to the best of your ability and then fold forward and allow your spine to curl. Repeat on both sides. 

Om Shanti Peace Peace Peace. Namaste
