Because of the snowy, icy weather here in Boston, I opted-out of my regular commute to work in Concord, NH and worked from home. Working from home, is great for freedom from distractions. But freedom from distractions results in my sitting fixated in one position at the computer. Sometimes in very un-posture-friendly-positions.
So around 5 pm, I took a break. I knew if I lay down on my yoga mat, I'd fall asleep...and unfortunately, I don't have the luxury of nap-time right now. So I stood on the floor (didn't even open my mat) and didn't move my feet the whole time, but felt quite invigorated after just a few minutes of movement. What I did was nothing crazy, but I I wanted to share it with you because it felt good for me. So I recorded it after I finished my practice (hmmmm, can you say procrastination?) The recording is 9 minutes long and is a standing vinyasa...meaning you keep flowing, but stand in one place the whole time.

If you're unfamiliar with the postures I mention in the sequence, here are some nice photos of the variations I used:
