Andrea’s full-body exercise can be performed using a chair, stool, or work surface.

1. Rest: Releve is a movement where your heels are together with each other – raise and lower your heels in this position 16 times.

2. Pleats: Turn your foot outward and flex both legs, flapping for 16 counts.

Acknowledging that taking breaks between work is essential, and taking some breaks as you move your body, Andrea suggests, “Stand behind your chair, and use it for support like a crossbar. First position — heels together, toes apart, triangle shape, knees bent (tuck) ) and start pulsing. To progress, lift your heels off the floor (nip) and keep pulsing.”
