Hunching over computers and other technological devices for long periods of time and our increasingly sedentary lifestyle has led many of us to develop aches and chronic pains that may be alleviated with postural adjustments.
Creating an awareness of habitual sitting, standing and walking patterns and making adaptive changes can relieve stress in the body. Learning postural re-alignment of the spine and simple yoga poses can build strength, flexibility and balance to support the muscular skeletal system. This can help with neck, shoulder, back and joint pain; and further lead to less compression of vital organs, improved breathing and digestion, increased energy and greater mental clarity. Please bring a Yoga Mat to class.
