Class Topic:  Relieving Computer Related Distress -

As a society, we are sitting in front of our computers for longer and longer periods of time, and the harm that can be caused to the body is also increasing.  Some of the most obvious areas of harm include: eye strain, stiff neck, lower back pain, general fatigue and carpal tunnel syndrome.

      Sitting itself is a dynamic process. Most of us think of sitting as a static event, and that the correct sitting posture involves holding ourselves in a certain position.   Unfortunately, this belief and other apparently obvious notions about posture and the body’s movement and the use of the eyes, are not founded on fact or good health principles, but in fact, may have been the source of our current pain, stiffness and discomfort. 

      There is no correct posture, there is no ideal chair.  The human nervous system evolved to adapt to change and challenge -- not to just be made comfortable.  Through this class, by learning and applying the dynamics of functional sitting and movement, our eyestrain, aches and pains related to working with computers should quickly disappear.

The fee for the class is $25 for each session.  Each session will last for 2 hours.

This class is scheduled to begin on Saturday, October 26, 2002 from 10:30 a.m. to 12;30 p.m. in Pasadena.
