After constantly sitting for eight to nine hours, your body may tend to get stiff. In that case, there are several postures that you need to adopt while sitting on the chair to get rid of that stiffness.

Cat pose

To undo some of the stiffness, start by placing your feet flat on the floor. As you slowly bend down move your pelvis forward and back, focus on working out your core muscles to feel that your body is getting loose.

Maintain your breathing while you perform the exercise and tilt the top of your pelvis back, drawing your belly button toward your spine like one would in a cat pose.

Pigeon pose

Lift your right knee and place it over your left thigh so that your ankle bone rests on the top of your knee. Then you need to stretch on your right hip for better muscle relaxation.

Staff pose

Move forward towards the edge of the chair on which you are seated. Just spread your legs and extend it out in front with your heels resting on the floor and toes pointing toward the roof. Then take your right ankle and put it over your left.

Then as you inhale and exhale, follow the exercise until you feel a stretch in the hamstring muscles on your left side.

Seated neck rolls

Put your hand on the arms of the hair and try to move your neck. Firstly, start by bringing your right ear to the right shoulder, then to the centre and later ending it up with the left shoulder touching your left ear. Then after doing this, you can easily rotate your neck 360 degrees clockwise and anti-clockwise for better muscle relaxation.

Reverse prayer pose

Move forward at the edge of the chair. Take your palms and arms behind, towards your lower back with fingers pointing upwards. With this exercise, you need to feel your ribcage lift and lower with each breath.
