Feeling crunched up at your desk? Shoulders have more knots than a scout’s handbook? Some simple advice and easy exercises from Emma, of The Workplace Yogi, will get you straightened out.

Workplace health issues cost businesses thousands of dollars every year and for organisations these issues translate into lost productivity, absenteeism, turnover of staff and increasing health insurance premiums. But around the world, companies are now embracing workplace or corporate yoga as a smart solution to wellness as it offers an innovative, convenient and cost effective way of bringing health into their offices and organisations.

In our Chair Yoga classes we introduce the concept of ‘Active Sitting’ and enable employees to understand how to sit in a way that will protect their bodies from repetitive strain injuries and aches and pains that often come with desk-based jobs.
