Twists, forward folds, hip openers the list goes on.  There really is no end to the benefits of seated yoga postures.  They can be passive, active, strengthening and lengthening.  Even if you don’t have time to get a full practice in, try to incorporate some seated postures each day.  Focus on your spine and belly.  Generally you will want to create length in the spine, relaxing the shoulders away from the ears.  The belly is there to support your spine so draw it in and keep it activated.  Go on, get stretching!
