Whether you’re sitting in an office all day, sitting in class all day, or studying all night, sitting for long periods of time can make one very restless. Sitting for long periods of time can also slow down circulation, zap your energy, reduce the amount of oxygen delivered to your brain, slow metabolism, as well as compressing intestines and your spine. None of these sound very pretty, do they?! It’s very important to stand up every half 30-40 minutes, walk around, and stretch your body to keep it alive! This is where yoga comes to the rescue.
