Stretches for Desk Workers
Watch our webinar replay and revolutionise the way we work, one desk stretch at a time!
So many of us work from a seated position. This can wreak havoc on our posture, leaving us feeling stiff and uncomfortable. Poor posture can translate into increased injury risk in our favourite sports.
It can be hard to "undo" the impacts of staying seated so it is important to incorporate positive movements into our day to day life. Seonaidh is a project manager for a conservation charity by day, so understands the reality of busy, desk based jobs. She has found several tried and tested methods that will help you stay connected to your body no matter where you work.
This 1hr webinar will cover the theory of sitting, key exercises & stretches to help you counteract the effects of sitting & have plenty of time for Q&A.
Seonaidh's relationship with fitness didn't get off to the best start.
At school she would rather sit on the side-lines with a punishment exercise than join physical education classes. Seonaidh wouldn't run for the bus, and she didn't trust (or like) her body.
Discovering horse riding and pole dancing let her find new, fun ways to move, but her relationship with fitness wasn’t all plain sailing from there.
To progress her aerial skills and improve her riding she needed to condition. She needed to train away from the yard and the studio, but the gym wasn’t a place that inspired her. She began working on her fitness at home, but wanted to know more.
When she arrived at her personal training course she had barely spent any time in the gym, and still felt nervous about going to the squat rack. Her flexibility and strength had improved, but she still struggled with injuries and a lack of options in her home-based training. Training alongside a marathon runner was entirely out of her comfort zone but she pushed through and passed with flying colours.
Seonaidh adapted to gym life, but returned to her home training routes. She has since expanded and explored her equipment free training repertoire. She is an equipment free specialist working on pain relief, confidence building and performance entirely outside the gym environment! She holds her L3 PT, Mobility Coach, Flexibility Instructor and Pole Fitness Qualifications, and she is an NLP practitioner supporting her clients mindset journey.
Alongside supporting clients with fitness and mindset goals, Seonaidh has a career in conservation. She holds bat licences in England and has worked on river restoration and wetland creation projects.
