1. Forward Fold
Sitting all day means hamstrings are constantly in a flexed position. Forward fold is a great stretch as well as a great neck and back lengthener. Be sure to bend your knees if you feel any tightness in your back! Stand with your feet hip distance apart. Gently bend your knees and fold forward over your feet. Place hands either on the thighs, knees, shins, or floor, whatever is most comfortable. Hold for 5 deep breaths. When you are ready to stand up, slowly roll up your spine as thought you are placing each section individually against a wall.
