Work From Home Stretches for Posture Support

Updated: Nov 16, 2020


WFH Stretches to support your Posture


‼️ If there ever was one to Save & Refer to daily, THIS IS IT.


- Posture starting to look like Quasimodo? 🚶🏻‍♀️

- Experiencing neck or back pain after 8+ hours in front of your laptop? 👩🏻‍💻


Grab a foam roller (if you don’t have one no worries, stick to all the roller-less options below) & let’s get some relief!


10-15 reps 3X each for the following:


1A Foam Roller Thoracic Extension Arms crosses over Chest (beginner)

1B Arms Extended (advanced)


2A Foam Roller Thread the Needle (advanced)

2B Roller-less Thread the Needle (beginner)


3A Foam Roller Supported Open Books (beginner, support your knee with a firm pillow if you don’t own a roller)

3B Roller-less Open Books (advanced)


4A Roller Dynamic Puppy Pose (beginner)

4B Dynamic Down Dog (beginner)


🔥Hot Tips:

- Always execute focusing on your form over how deep into the stretch you can get

- Perform at your own pace and with control of the movement (no jerking, no forcing! videos are sped up) hold each rep 3-5seconds then release

- Let go of judgement for yourself, we can’t all be flexy acrobats, and that is perfectly A-OK 👌🏼

- Discomfort is normal, pain is not. Don’t continue any movement that brings up sharp or shooting pain. (Consult your chiropractor/ physical therapist if you have any pre-existing conditions)


✨ Perform daily for best results/ relief ✨

Until the next one,
