Unwinding Desk Posture
The evidence is clear: prolonged sitting is terrible for our health. When a person spends long periods of time sitting, their postural muscles become fatigued, resulting in the typical "desk posture:" shoulders slumped downward, hips rolled forward, & lower back in a stretched position. This can result in a number of chronic issues such as neck pain, tension headaches, shoulder pain, & back pain. How do we tackle these issues in light of a modern lifestyle that increasingly demands more sitting?
This class will focus on combating desk posture through corrective exercise & stretching that will help bring the body into a more neutral position. It is ideal for desk jockeys & people who spend lots of time sitting (drivers, students, dentists, tattoo artists, etc.).
While not a traditional exercise class, these sessions involve lots of movement, so comfortable clothing is recommended. All levels of fitness & ability are welcome. If you have any medical conditions in which a doctor limits your physical activity, please contact Tamara prior to registration.
