Most of us know that sitting at a desk all day isn’t exactly the best thing for our bodies. While a little slouching now and then isn’t so bad, drawn out over time, our poor desk habits can cause serious harm. Stuck at a desk all day? Ease tension and undo the damage caused by too much sitting with yoga. This week’s featured classes will help reset your body quickly to be able to continue working while establishing more blood flow, brain flow and body comfort.
