Class description:
Yoga can help prevent some of the problems associated with prolonged computer use. We will work on healthy posture and learn a variety of specifically targeted exercises that can be done at your desk, as well as yoga exercises to practice at home. This class is suitable for beginners, but not those in the acute phase of injury; a release from your physician is recommended for those experiencing chronic and/or severe pain, or with a history of RSI.
