Watch your back!


So how's the back bearing up with working from home?

I know of a few people who are experiencing lower back issues for the first time, not that this is entirely down to the several hours spent in the chair but I'll bet it plays a big part.

It's one thing to take breaks, which is the advice given sincerely by responsible employers, or even those with an eye on potential claim cases, "have you do completed your Desktop Environment assessment…"

It would be better to get tuned into your body, it's constraints, and then develop the range of movement you once had.

The weekend warriors are most vulnerable in this new way of working,.. Come the weekend, hitting the trails, grinding out the miles, pushing the body when it has been mostly sedentary, and held in an unnatural position all week, (thank the Victorians for inventing the chair).

There is the option of special chairs I suppose, although I prefer sitting cross legged on a bolster, it's been a revelation for me, my hips, my knees, and especially my back, shoulders and neck.

I certainly recommend we get to know our bodies and then work on the areas that need attention. The best way is to carry out a Range of Movement assessment. I can help with this over Zoom for now and when we are free again, on a safe 1:1 basis.

I will produce a home exercise practice to help you prevent\rectify\rehabilitate your body.

Yes, this is yoga, a means to prevent yourself from being another victim of bad posture, legacy injuries, body imbalance and dysfunctional movement.

My yoga is contemporary, relevant and above all aimed at helping today's postural issues.
