Attention desk dwellers: It's time to stretch out your backs.

In the video above, produced by the yoga experts at Udaya, LA-based instructor Vytas Baskauskas shows you how to pull off a yoga move that's ideal for releasing tension in your lower body, where it can build up if you're sitting too much -- a problem that can affect your health in several ways. Don't worry if you can't achieve the full stretch in the first try; Baskauskas offers some guidance on what you should be feeling depending on your level of expertise.
