Seated Desk Pilates "Swan" Extension

video
A wonderful remedy for your back after prolonged sitting. It helps reverse the effects that gravity has of pulling us into a forward bent "C curve" position. This is great for strengthening the back muscles and improving posture. Make sure you slide your shoulder blades down away from your ears as you begin to rise, inhaling and lifting your breastbone to the sun. Exhale as you release back down to the desk.
