Lift Your Lower Body Bend and twist will relax the upper part of your body. However, there are some moves for your lower body as well. Exhale completely, then as you inhale, grasp one knee and pull it toward your chest. Hold the stretch as you hold your breath, and release as you exhale. Repeat for the other knee. Doing leg lifts in your chair will help in improved circulation. Grasp the chair for balance, and raise one leg to a straight position. Hold briefly, release and repeat on the other side.
