Let's be real, it's not always easy or convenient to clock in quality time at the gym. And, with all the hours we spend working behind a desk, trudging up S.F. hills, and glued to our iPhone screens, our bodies can start to feel a little bit burnt out.

We tapped Laura Burkhart of YogaWorks in S.F. to school us on how we can easily fix ailments — such as sore hamstrings, tight backs, and stiff necks — caused by our daily habits. Whether you're feeling the impact of biking around the city or shoulder pain caused by too much 'gramming, these easy stretches will help. The best part? You don't need to be a gym rat to master them; just find a little space in the office or house, and you're good to go!
