Gentle & Chair Yoga for the Technology Age with Sherry Zak Morris

Computers, cell phones and tablets open up our world to new ideas, fun, education, business and community. However, the dark side of technology is the posture-breaking, static-holding and repetitive motions that can wreak havoc in our physical structures. No age is immune to these side effects of computer use. As Yoga Teachers, we undoubtedly will have students in our classes that are suffering from physical issues directly tied to their computer use. Learning effective Gentle and Chair Yoga poses and sequences to bring relief to the computer worker is a must for Yoga Teachers who teach group classes.

Yoga Teachers and Tech Workers Welcome! Come Learn! REGISTER UNDER WORKSHOPS
