Workshop Description:

This workshop will focus on how to properly sit on a chair for long periods of time by diving into the structure of the spine and its surrounding muscles. Jelena will also share some exercises to alleviate neck and back pain as well as strengthen these muscles to prevent injury. The workshop will finish off with a demonstration of a 5-minute sequence that can be used for in-between screen-time, and lots of time for Q&A!
