Spending hours a day hunched over a computer often leads to a tight neck, shoulders, hips and wrists, but Salute the Desk is an app that's designed to improve posture and release tension by introducing yoga that you can do in a chair.

Salute the Desk includes 27 poses and two relaxation sessions that are shared through audio, video and written instructions. These stretching sets were developed by a qualified yoga, tai chi and qigong instructor in order to help people find a little bit more balance in their time spent at work.

Since mindfulness is a big part of a routine yoga practice, the app makes it possible to schedule reminders and alerts to stretch routinely throughout the day. As well as being a great tool for the office, Salute the Desk is valuable for travelers who spend a lot of time sitting as well.
