The stress of everyday life can create unhealthy patterns of tension and tightness in the entire body. Tight muscles contribute to bad posture, which causes restricted movement and chronic muscle pain.
Sometimes we need a little help to straighten back up! In this workshop you will discover where your body is “stuck” and receive hands-on instruction that are specific to your body’s needs. Unlock your neck, shoulders, back, feet… whatever nags you.
Though we will be doing stretches and exercises, it is completely unlike any yoga or fitness class. Exercising and stretching with unhealthy posture will only strengthen your bad habits, and will not help in the long run. Our goal is to help you make permanent change!
In addition to the stretches, we will also be discussing simple techniques that you can use to improve your posture in your daily routine. From texting to walking, we will show you simple ergonomic tips that will save your posture.
