About this FieldTrip

“Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live”- Jim Rohn

This lunchtime FieldTrip is for the freelancer or office worker that spends a majority of their time at a desk in front of a computer. Pain, stress and fatigue due to working in an office setting are NOT something you have to live with on a daily basis.

This workshop will offer:

-Yoga based movements and stretches that you can do at work to relieve back, shoulder and neck pain, and how to do them correctly.

-A 10 minute stretching and strengthening “before work routine” to enhance postural support and awareness.

-Breathing exercises that can be done at work to combat “screen apnea” or the cessation of is the temporary cessation of breath or shallow breathing while sitting in front of a screen.

-An introduction to mindfulness practices.

-A guided meditation for all levels (including those who have never meditated before).

You do not need to wear yoga or workout clothes (you won’t sweat!), but comfortable clothing that you can move in is highly suggested.
