The human body takes a lot of strain from standing jobs such as retail, food service and preparation, and health care. The hard surfaces upon which we stand and walk certainly don’t help the situation. This video will demonstrate a sequence of yoga poses to loosen a tight lower back and hamstrings, bring mobility and strength to the ankles and feet, as well as build strength in the legs to prevent damage to the lower joints. It is recommended to practice this sequence every day in the morning upon waking and at night before sleeping. If this is not possible, then at least three times per week, once a day. Practitioners should always listen to the “yes” and “no” signals of their own bodies, focusing on the internal feeling of where the pose is working, not the external shape of how it looks.
