Feeling stress from work and experiencing tightness in the jaw, neck, shoulders, and back? Consider coming to this workshop. Many of our habits can be a set up for eventual injury and chronic pain. Understanding proper posture, alignment, and working with the breath can facilitate discovery of safe and healthy ways to prevent injury. This workshop offers an opportunity to explore avenues to decrease the negative side effects of working at a computer. There will be a brief review of anatomy, posture and alignment, review workstation set up both at work and home, discussion of individual challenges and solutions to getting away from the computer, practice a modified sequence of yoga poses that can be done at the workplace, explore how to create a quiet place to let go of stress, and find support from co-workers & the management team. Beginning as well as advanced yoga students and teachers are welcome.
Margie Cohea, RN, MS, has studied yoga in the Iyengar tradition since 1995. She is a graduate of The Yoga Room’s 500 hour Advanced Studies Program. Her primary teachers are Donald Moyer, Mary Lou Weprin and Michael Lucey. Margie became interested in finding ways through yoga practice to decrease muscle strain and improve her posture while working at her computer. This practice evolved into a weekly workplace wellness yoga practice for her department to help decrease injury from computer use. Margie teaches private and group classes along with workshops that focus on safe alignment and posture, breathing awareness, and relaxation. She is inspired by the curiosity and adventure of exploration that students bring to class.
