Repetitive use injury (RUI) in the seated working position can result in significant pain and loss of work, perhaps shortening an otherwise long fulfilling career. Breathing, stretching and strengthening key muscle groups to better support and release tension will lead to freedom in the body, the mind and the spirit. This course focuses on finding the awareness of, stretching and strengthening several key muscle groups that create pain and limited range of motion in habitual poor posture of repetitive positioning while seated.

  • Learn how and why overuse syndrome can result in pain.
  • Understand early identification of imbalance in the body.
  • Understand the antagonist/protagonist relationship of muscles at work.
  • Use the breath to become aware of body sensation.
  • Identify tight tissue or weakness and how to apply stretching or strengthening positions.
  • Balance muscle groups while working throughout the day.
