As someone with a chronic illness, who works from home (which I am so grateful for), sitting at my desk for long periods of time, certainly can make my endometriosis act up. My pelvis and hips become crampy and painful and I usually have to resort to my heating pad and couch for the day.
As much as I love the couch, HA, I do prefer to work at my desk. Lately, I have started working on and learning different stretches to do, throughout the day. Having these breaks every few hours, has started to help not need my heating pad as much and not resort to the couch so soon in the day.
Today, I am so excited to share with you a sweet friend of mine who put together an amazing short yoga class stretch for you to utilize, when you are needing breaks from your desk! (Even for those who are not dealing with chronic illness pain, but do sit at the desk for a long period of time, this is for you too! )
Ready to take a break and stretch out? Watch Rachel's Class below!
