If you sit at a desk or computer all day you may be aware of the aches and pains and rounded shoulders or stiff back that can occur.
Why not club together, or even persuade your boss or HR department to pay for a yoga class in your workplace. You don’t need much space, maybe you could move some furniture in a meeting room and let me come to you. I’ll teach you some great postures, asanas, to help with your posture at work and in day to day life. Holding a class at work is the perfect solution to fitting in your excercise with your daily life.
Remember that Iyengar yoga can help protect you from future injury and excercise in the day can boost productivity, you can read a study here.
