Caring For Your Spine with Posture
Back, neck, and shoulder pain are on the rise, as are burnout and other stress related problems. Most of us recognize that sitting all day slouched at the computer plays a role. But what to do about it? Many of us try to “pull ourselves up straight” but try as we might, we can’t maintain it. In this workshop I’ll introduce people to the wonderful art and science of posture – why is posture important and how to ease into a comfortable posture while at work. We’ll also explore the idea that caring for your spine throughout the day can not only release tension and help with chronic pain, but also help to change the quality of your attention.
