study break

Long hours sitting and studying can be rough on your bod. Take a break with these pilates moves which can be done at your desk.

1. Spine Twist
Cross arms in front of chest, hands resting on opposite shoulder. Inhale, legnthen the spine. Exhale, rotate to the left keeping shoulders down and arms in front of chest. Inhale, Exhale to deepen the twist. On the next exhale return to center. Repeat on the right. 4-6 reps.

2. Single Leg Stretch
Inhale, legnthen the spine. Exhale, lift your right knee, place your left hand on your shin, right hand to your ankle. Bring your knee into your chest, and your forehead to your knee. Keep your elbows folded in and your shoulders down. Inhale, and on your next exhale, release to starting position. Repeat to the other side, 6-8 reps each leg.

You are now relaxed and refreshed! Please stop by the reference desk if there is anything else we can do to ease your mind!
