In the second in our shiny new video 5 minute yoga series, the lovely Jyoti Sharma shows us a simple spinal twist that will help us avoid lower back pain.

We all know we shouldn’t be sitting hunched over our computers for long periods – but we do it anyway…

So, lets not do that, eh? It’s time to stand up and check out what everyone else in the office is doing and do a few stretches. Yes, you can do them sitting down, but isn’t it friendlier to stand up and wave your arms about? Of course it is!

Not only that, but during this video, Jyoti inadvertently triggers a robot invasion. Who’d have thought it? You don’t get that in most exercise videos, now do you?

Despite this, Fridays are now devoted specifically to our Sneaky Yoga program.  There’s both helpful tips and sneaky tricks to get more yoga into your day. Yay for tiny little bits of exercise.
