Chair yoga is something we started introducing as a therapeutic quick break in-between working hours.
It’s success is rooted on not having to come down on a mat to do a stretch. Because the movements are easy as they are effective, it can easily be accessed remotely. Breaks are proven to increase productivity, and refresh focus when done intelligently and scheduled consistently.
