1. High Stretch Pose
Take a deep breath and lift your arms with palms facing upwards and fingers locked together. Lean to each side and hold for a few seconds before breathing out.
Turn your body to the side whilst sitting on your chair with both hands on your waist to deepen the twist. With each twist, take a deep breath for a few seconds and breathe out. Repeat on each side.
3. Stretching arm and wrist
Stretch out your arm to the side and spread your fingers then bringing them to a closed fist. Repeat this movement 5 times on each hand. Then stretch arm in front of you with hands pointing downwards and gently pulling fingers to counter stretch the wrist and forearm. Repeat on both sides.
