5 Yoga Poses For Instant Relaxation For Working Moms

After you have successfully weaned off your baby and are back to work, you might be feeling the pressure of tasks that have piled on during your absence.

From so many unread emails to numbers of files ready for your approval, you might not have an opportunity to unwind and relax. Sitting for hours before your PC the entire day, your body and mind become tired. When you need to unwind and calm your nerves down from your office routine, a weekend by the sea or mountain may sound fun, but it is not conceivable. Right, isn’t it? 

As working moms, we often get less time to take care of ourselves let alone go out of town to relax, so what can we do? Well, you can try yoga for instant relaxation.

Being seated for a long duration in the workplace could affect our lower back, shoulders, and spine. And you know how much our backs have been hurting since delivery (well, we got an epidural shot in the spine, and it's no joke.) All we want to do is yell our lungs out because of the pain, irritation, and tiredness, but we cannot do that. To make things easier for you we researched five yoga poses that you can do anytime and anywhere. The best thing about these poses is that you don’t have to spend a single penny while investing very little time from your busy schedule. 

Five Yoga Poses for Working Moms 

Yoga can help you unwind your body and take a breather when you are exhausted because of the consistent office work. These yoga poses are perfect for new working moms who simply want to relax without disturbing their busy schedules or co-workers. So, what are you waiting for? Let’s try these simple and easy yoga poses when you want to unwind no matter where you are, whether in the office or home:

forward bend yoga pose
  1. Forward Bend 

One of the simplest yoga poses for working moms is the seated forward bend. You can do this workout while being seated on your work desk. All you have to do is simply push your seat back, away from your work area, and keep your feet on the floor, then entwine your fingers behind your back while turning your toes in slightly. Once you are in position, breathe in and bend forwards, stay in the position for at least 5 seconds while keeping your legs straight. Go back to the starting position. Repeat at least 5-10 times a couple of times a day.  

wrist stretching
  1. Wrist Stretch and Release 

Typing on a computer for a long time could affect your fingers and wrists' strength. As working moms, we know how much we have to do at home and office, from pumping milk for our little ones to cutting and chopping our elder’s favorite fruits. We have no rest and so do our hands. This simple stretch and relax exercise will offer some respite to your tired wrist and hands. It's pretty basic. All you have to do is stand up and stretch your hands while interlacing your fingers or you can also try to push your work table with your palm. Then you can rotate your wrists to relax them. For fingers, all you need to do is hold your fingers and try pressing them towards your forearm. Do this for at least 5 minutes.

neck roll yoga pose
  1. Neck Roll 

Another easy exercise that you can do is neck roll. All you have to do is close your eyes and bring your jaw near to your check chest and begin revolving your neck gradually by taking it over to the right ear over the right shoulder, head back, and then the left ear over the left shoulder. Keep your shoulders very loose while doing this and do not do any sudden movements. Do this for at least 5 minutes. 

  1. Spinal Twist on Chair 

A seated spinal twist will help you with getting rid of back pain that you must be feeling every since delivery. Sit straight on your seat. Breathe in and begin twisting, however, keep in mind that you need to breathe out contort when you are turning sideways on your seat. Hold the armrest of your seat to keep control of the movement. Stay in the position for a couple of seconds and return to the starting position. Do this on the other side as well. Repeat at least 10-15 times.

backward bend
  1. Forward and Backward Bend 

Just like seated forward bend, you can do this forward and backward bend while standing near your work area. All you have to do is stand on your feet shoulder-width apart, weave your fingers behind your back and bend forward as much as you can. Similarly, now bend backward as much as your body allows you to. Breathe in while bending or going backward and breathe out while returning to starting position. Do this for 10-15 repetitions. 


If you are feeling tired and need serenity and relaxation, then you need to give these yoga poses for working moms a try. Keeping your body and mind relaxed is the first step of taking care of yourself, your baby, and your family. With a relaxed mind, you’ll be able to create a better work-life balance.
