Workplace Wellness Just A Twist Away

For every $1 invested in workplace wellness, a company can expect $3 in cost savings or benefits (University of Michigan Research Center), as it reduces sick leave costs and medical claims due to work related repetitive stresses. Programs offered by Brisbane based AtWorkYoga at the same time improve workplace morale, increase motivation and productivity through our focus on balancing individuals and corporations. Here is one thing you can do: "Twist again and keep healthy and flexible on many levels"

Put your left hand on right shoulder and the left hand behind your back on left hip and twist to the right side, gently pushing the right shoulder back. Your knees can be slightly bend. Feel the twist in the whole torso and enjoy it every time you exhale, letting go of the resistance you may feel in the beginning.

Yoga offers a variety of twisting exercises that can be done standing, sitting or lying down. Some can even be practiced in a chair. Twists simply wring out tension from the body, stimulate circulation, raise energy levels and relieve tired muscles. Physiologically, the gentle twisting movement stimulates blood flow and thus circulation. That's why one experiences refreshing effects of a twist straight away.
