Many years ago, I started practicing yoga. Back then, doing yoga at work was seen as “odd” or unusual.

I am a big believer that seeing is more effective than telling when it comes to body movement. HuffPo, seems to agree. Watch the video, “5 Yoga Poses To Get You Through Your Midday Slump At Work,” to learn how to do some yoga poses at work.
