Correct Your Posture & Reduce Back Pain
23 March @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm£25 – £69
12 ESSENTIAL EXERCISES TO CORRECT YOUR POSTURE
Good posture is essential for looking after your spine, reducing the risk of getting back pain, and helping you to manage any symptoms. In this workshop, you will discover all the exercises you need to improve the flexibility and strength of your spine -and your posture will improve as a consequence.
In addition, your legs will feel stronger, your balance will improve, and after a few weeks of doing these exercises, you will likely feel altogether more healthy and energetic.
When we sit and stand well, our whole body functions better:
There is room for the diaphragm to move so that we can breathe well;
There is more room for our food to be digested, reducing trapped wind and constipation;
The nervous system can operate efficiently, able to send its messages with a clear path along the spine;
The circulation of blood and lymph can flow better, reducing thread veins and swollen ankles;
Good posture reduces stress on your joints, muscles, and other soft tissues so that you are less at risk of injury and pain.
Have you ever seen a photograph of yourself and thought, surely I don’t stand like that? Would you like to develop greater postural awareness and learn the tricks favoured by physiotherapists to help you replace poor postural habits with good ones? When you know how you use your body, it makes it easier to correct your own posture at will.
THE BUTTAFLY EFFECT
The Buttafly is hugely beneficial to correcting posture. Used in the lying position, the Buttafly shape allows the base of the spine to be free of direct pressure. This unique position facilitates an unwinding of the spine from its postural habits. Most people find the position very comfortable and we show you the best ways to set this up safely and so that you can get the full benefits – in itself, the position promotes relaxation.
The STANDARD size Buttafly can be used in many ways to help correct posture and they will all be covered in this workshop.
