Numerous scientific studies have confirmed the health, brainpower and stress problems caused by prolonged sitting. Many doctors compare sitting with smoking because of the damages they cause. The good news is that surveys, linked to seated jobs and health issues, show that the most effective way to reduce health risks is not just doing sports in your free time, but more movement and better posture at work. Another good news is that it is true that the brain affects the body when we are under stress, but the opposite is also true – using body movements we can affect the brain and reduce the mental tension. This is CHAIR UP’s solution that will be shared with us.

This workshop is aimed to train the whole body, incl. balance, focus, and parts of the body that are influenced by a sedentary lifestyle. It will include motivation talk and a practical workshop led by experts.

Among the questions that will find answers are:

  • Why we have to move more often even at work?
  • Why we need fresh blood in our veins?
  • How to be more efficient on busy days?
  • How to reduce stress and chronic fatigue?
  • Useful tips and ideas for managers and team leaders.

Physiotherapist’s tips: Self-massage and unblocking techniques for the whole body. Special body movements for the neck, back, and lower back pain. Brain stimulation and concentration. Anti-headache tips.
Office workout: Easy office exercises with a chair, aimed at the muscle groups and parts of the body that suffer the most from prolonged sitting. They will also improve your balance, focus, and coordination, and will stimulate your brain in order to achieve better work results.
