Why do Office Yoga or Pilates
Working in an office or at a computer for prolonged periods of time can put strain on the neck, shoulder and back muscles which in turn can lead to tension and stiffness. This tension can cause headaches, as well as back, neck and shoulder pain. If left unattended, it could also impact your ability to function effectively at work and your overall quality of life. Simple techniques taught by qualified Yoga Instructors from Monsoon Yoga will help alleviate the pain and other symptoms by releasing tension and increasing muscle strength and flexibility.
