How to Live a happier and healthier life at work by improving Posture?

Many people cause their own back and body pain through their everyday « bad » postural and movement habits. Even if many of us sense that our poor posture is probably the root of the problem, we are mostly unable to change long-standing habits by ourselves.
Nowadays, we read crazy articles that might frighten us. Let’s mention the most famous ones… « Sitting will kill you even if you exercise » by Jen Christensen and « Sitting is the new smoking of our generation » by Nilofer Merchant. So… Ok no panic!!!! Let’s understand together and Act!
This meet up will be a wonderful opportunity for people to understand what is posture. We will of course talk about the Effects and Influences of the sitting position on body posture and on state of mind BUT above all we will find out what to do in order to adjust ourselves with this way of life that is ours. There is plenty of solutions!

Dreamy posture and productive thoughts at work / Basics 1

Make your people Stop training patterns! Let them Discover how to use efficiently their body and their thoughts in the most efficient way. They will Present themselves  at their very best, the onet hey’ve even never imagined!
Posture is the first and most important step to living a healthy, happy, successful  and pain-free life. The way we think, we feel and train our brain on a daily base shapes our posture and vice-versa.
People will explore the relationship between posture, breath, muscular tension and emotional well-being. People will learn how to correct and maintain your perfect posture by meeting your central axis, improve your self-image and get rid of your chronical  pains.People will discover a creative approach to embody and personalize the learning of “how can i use my body in an healthy way and how can i actually improve and enjoy my ideal posture? » .

Claudine believes that people suffer from pain and dysfunction because they have forgotten how to use their bodies. It’s not the act of sitting for long periods that causes us pain, she says, it’s the way we position ourselves.

An evolutionary issue.
“I need to do things that make sense and that I can see results from.Claudine’s work is like that,” saysBettina Cohen, 44, accounter, who has suffered from back and neck pain that she attributes to doing too much work at her desk.

For many office workers, sitting at a desk all day goes hand in hand with back, neck and shoulder discomfort. Stress and poor positioning can bring on aches or exacerbate injuries among workers faced with heavy computing, frequent travel and long meetings. Regardless of occupation or lifestyle, backaches affect most people— about 8 in 10 deal with the pain at some point in their lives, according to Richard Deyo, a professor of family medicine at Oregon Health and Science University.
The expenses are huge as well. By one estimate that appeared in The Journal of the American Medical Association, the national cost of treating people with back and neck pain was $US86 billion in 2005. And with back pain one of the main reasons for worker disability, missed work because of these aches might cost employers close to $US7 billion a year, according to one study.
For most people with back pain, the aches are short lived and relief comes with rest and time. BUT Claudine can relate to the anxiety of searching for an answer. She previously dealt with an auto immune disease at the age of 24, poly arthritis. She eventually had heavy treatments, but they failed, she says.
When doctors suggested she try a second time, Claudine began a search for other answers. Many of her own clients come to her similarly exasperated, she said.
“I needed her touch, her observations and her humanity, » Brigitte Bigar said.
In Claudine’s courses and meet up, people relearn how to sit, stand, sleep and walk. While some clients take private classes, many enrol in group workshops with eight to 10 people who meet for six 90-minute sessions. While the students are often strangers, the classes are casual and intimate: most clients wear yoga clothes or sweatpants, and they giggle awkwardly as Claudine adjusts their bodies.
Claudine says that most people tend to be relaxed and slumped (think of a C-shaped spine), or arched up and tense (an S shape), the stand-up-straight style of posture that some parents demand of their children. She helps her students return their bodies to the stance that she says nature intended: upright and relaxed (a tall J spine).
With the care of a kindergarten teacher, Claudine adjusts clients’ bodies from bottom to top. She helps clients relax the front of the pelvis downward, so the belt line slants forward and the butt angles back, so “your behind is behind you, not under you”.
Claudine guides students’ rib cages that sway too far back, so they are flush with the stomach. She takes their hunched shoulders, rolls them up and brings them gently back and down. And she helps students release tension in their necks by re-centering their heads over their spines and pulling upward slightly at the hairline on the neck. The result is an elongated and well-stacked spine that many students say they can maintain comfortably because their muscles are not strained.
She encourages people to take the class with colleagues and relatives, so that students can help remind each other to adjust their bodies. But even those who work alone find ways to remember their posture.
After doing a group workshop with Claudine this year, Daniel says many things now remind him to make adjustments — seeing others with poor posture at the coffee place or the gym, passing by his reflection in a window, or sitting down in a chair to work.
“But I don’t beat myself up about it. When I’m aware of my posture, I fix it,” Daniel said. “And eventually, I think, it becomes who you are. »

It all start with the knowledge that we have the power to change.
The class typically starts with a mental and physical warm up. We then cover our subject matter, which could be looking at the design of the feet, the pelvis , the spine, or the principles of an healthy and efficient breathing- the choices are endless. By embodying, understanding our body’s design and how it functions best, we get a clearer picture of what is happening inside our body, we are able to take responsibility- ultimately true change has to come from us. Through the class, we use the knowledge we gain and integrate it into a fun, toning band movement routine to music, and we will use the Franklin Balls for a series of reshaping exercises to give our body a deep sense of effortlessly aligned posture.

Why its important to take care of your Posture? 

On Health: It’s not just kids with backpacks or cane-carrying seniors… Studies show poor posture is a major cause of back and neck pain for all ages, and over time often contributes to digestive, respiratory and cardiopulmonary problems. Hours of hunching over a computer, slouching while texting, slumping while playing video games, sitting at work, at home, and during travel is affecting your posture.

On Performance: Optimal athletic performance requires strong posture and balance. Whether athletics are recreational, competitive or part of an active lifestyle, training core stabilization, fluid coordinated motion, balance and good posture are essential to perform at your best and avoid injury.

On Appearance: Your posture is how the world sees you. People with strong posture look better, more appealing, trimmer, and are perceived to be more confident.

Strengthening posture is one of the most important strategies to keep your body active and moving well, with the added benefit of looking younger and in many cases, more slender.

On Mood: a study at Ohio State University in 2003 found that our opinions can be subsconsciously influenced by our physical behavior. Here are two fascinating examples:

1/ When participants in the study nodded in agreements or shook their heads to signal disagreement, these actions affected their opinions without them realizing.

2/ The same study also showed that when participants hugged themselves, they were sometimes able to reduce their physical pain.

There are a number of other significant benefits of a healthy workforce. By encouraging and promoting a healthy workforce, you can improve:
– productivity
– business performance
– staff morale
– employee engagement
You will also be able to reduce:
– accidents and work-related ill health
– sick pay costs
– insurance costs
– pressure on employees covering for those who are absent
