Free Workshop on How to Sit Properly
Apr 30, 2012 10:38PM
Tamar Myers, owner of Myers Bodywork, in Lexington, will present a free workshop on seated body mechanics at the Lexington Medical Building, from 3 to 4 p.m. on May 20. This short workshop will teach basic concepts from the Aston movement paradigm, to allow for better alignment while seated. Myers also will guide participants in a simple exercise for finding a more neutral sitting posture.
“We all spend so much time trapped in chairs or cars these days, which can lead to stiffness and tension,” Myers says. “I love being able to offer simple movement options that give people tools to address some of the most common challenges our bodies deal with.” Myers says the workshop will benefit anyone who has to sit for any prolonged period of time in the course of daily activities. Those interested should RSVP by May 4, as class size is limited.
Myers has been in the field of bodywork and movement coaching for 20 years and has extensive teaching experience. She embraces the Aston movement paradigm because of its respect for people’s inherent asymmetries and three-dimensionality.
Myers Bodywork is located at 16 Clarke St., Lexington. For more information, call 781-862-8000 or visit MyersBodywork.com.
