Yoga for Better Posture

Is your body starting to mould to your chair?

Sitting in chairs and working on computers can quickly contort your body, rounding your upper back and shoulders, leading to a stiff neck and secondary low back problems.

The Light Centre now has a new drop-in class that acts as an antidote to these problems, teaching you exercises that will reopen your posture.

YOGA FOR BETTER POSTURE WITH GUILLERMO AND PAOLA

Our bodies are designed to regularly move. Sitting in tense, static postures all day causes the supporting muscles to become chronically knotted and our bodies to become moulded to the shape we sit in. Gradually our biomechanics become altered, creating stresses throughout our bodies that contribute to aches and pains and predispose us to further injuries. Regaining a normal posture requires a careful and sustained unravelling of the compensations and stiffness.

This class will re-educate your body with a routine designed especially to release tensions held in your upper back by using specific tools to break down adhesions – you will learn how to be your own osteopath.

This is essential for anyone who works in an office.

No understanding of Yoga is necessary.

WHEN:  Tuesdays 1.15 – 2pm
Thursdays 1.30 – 2.15pm
