This class is online via Zoom. Zoom links will be sent after you register (use the registration form at bottom of this page).
Do you spend more than a couple hours sitting each day? Or perhaps getting up out of a chair is harder than it used to be?
Sitting with poor alignment means muscles and tissues work overtime to do the job your bones are designed for. This leads to the all-too-familiar pain, tension and fatigue in your neck, shoulders and/or back. With injury or age, standing from a chair can require effort. You might find yourself holding your breath, pushing with your arms and straining your muscles.
When you know how to align yourself properly and use your weight effectively in gravity, sitting and getting out of your seat can become much simpler and comfortable.
In this class you’ll discover how to:
- Avoid common mistakes people make when sitting and getting up that create strain
- Align yourself when sitting so your skeleton supports you, alleviating tension and strain in your neck and shoulders
- Use counterbalance to get up from your chair with more grace and ease
This class is primarily done sitting in a chair. Everyone welcome, including wheel chair users.
Class meets online for 3 Tuesdays: November 7, 14 & 28 (no class 11/21)
* Note: At least 3 students must be registered by 7am Mon 11/6 for class to run.
