Work related habits, postural patterns, repetitive activities and injuries, sedentary lifestyle or simple ageing can cause discomfort, chronic pain and tightness in your neck, shoulder and throughout the upper back. Stop adopting incorrect ways to stand and sit that creates postural imbalance. Doing occasional stretch here and there will not help. It’s like eating cookies all day, then doing exercise for 10 minutes and wondering, hmmm… why it doesn’t work.
Bring more awareness to the habits and patterns that create greater balance and ease in your body. Learn specific stretches and yoga techniques to alleviate stiffness, restriction, compression or discomfort and create greater freedom of movement. Bring this practice of retraining and strengthening the muscles into your day to day routine.
No prior yoga experience required; Pre-registration is strongly recommended.
