Do you carry a full backpack and/or sports equipment to school everyday? Do you spend many hours at the computer studying or looking down at an i-pad or phone? All these behavioral patterns could set you up for future muscular skeletal aches and pains. You can nip these problems in the bud! Postural awareness and aligning the spine to support the muscles and joints can stop you developing neck, shoulder and back pain later in life. Learn to practice postural exercises and yoga poses that will strengthen the back, lengthen hamstrings and open the front of the body . You will notice better breath capacity to support cognition and study, as well as less strain in the body and a greater sense of calm in the mind. Please bring a Yoga Mat to class.
