Over the past 50 years we have adopted a work lifestyle that has trained us to neglect our bodies by using anatomically unsuitable chairs and desks. Everyone of us knows from first hand experience about the damage and dysfunction it can do to our bodies.
There are many sources for exercises and ergonomically better chairs and desks (hello, standing desk!), but what most people overlook is the one and most important factor that makes or breaks any effort to get out of pain: You!
How you are sitting or standing at your desk, how you are using your arms in typing, how you are holding your phone determines the way you feel. We need to learn to use our bodies well in relation to all our gadgets, or we will continue to develop chronic dysfunction, RSI injuries, and pain. If you are already in pain, you may have developed symptoms of what is called 'text neck',a modern disease which is negatively affecting all systems of the human body, starting with the neck, back, arms and entire spine. As technology continues to develop, 'text neck' will become more apparent in everyone's life.
Come and learn Alexander's principles of coordination as the most empowering step you can take in caring for yourself and keeping your body awareness sharp and your posture healthy. The missing link to avoiding 'text neck' and other musculoskeletal ailments is the skill of self-awareness as taught by experienced Alexander Technique teachers.
This workshop will address:
A new understanding of human biomechanics and poor postural habits.
How to create a more functional interface between you and the device, at the office and on-the-go.
An expanded look at the use of standing desks and expensive office chairs.
Action steps you can take to return to ease through increased self-awareness.
Please bring your Laptop and/or Mobile Phone. Be prepared to rediscover your natural ability to feel more at ease in your body when working.
