Yoga trainer Yogesh Chavan prescribes the following asanas to handle everyday pressures on the body

Jalandhar Shuddhi Kriya
Under pressure, lactic acid accumulates around our neck. Exercising it frees up the nervous system since all the nerves branch out from the base of the neck.

Rotate your neck clock-wise and then anti-clockwise. Sit cross-legged on the floor. Drop the neck forward, chin should touch the chest, roll your face to your left, then drop your head back, roll to the right and come back to the starting position. Repeat in anti-clockwise. Repeat five to six times in each direction.

To relieve tired collar muscles, rest your hands on your thighs and roll your shoulders front to back and then back to front. Repeat five to six times.

Jathar Parivartanasan
The lower back feels the strain if you are on your feet, or sitting in the same posture for too long. Twisting it flexes the spine. Lie on your back and pull your knees up. Drop your knees to the left such that the left knee touches the floor and the right thigh and knee rests on it. Twist your head to your right side and your hands should be near your ears, and your mouth should be as if you’ve just yawned. Hold for a count of seven and then change directions. Repeat three times for each side. Then sit up for a short session of Pranayam

Pressure Point
The energy regeneration point is located on the middle of the inside of the right forearm. Press, roll and pump it with your left thumb to energise it.
