Moving Work – Supporting your body to work from home

For many folks, one of the learnings from 2020 has been how to work from home. As we look into 2021, working from home will be a continuing situation by necessity or choice. It presents a great opportunity to look at how we are working and how we might be able to adapt and change habits to make the physical nature of this work more sustainable and healthy for our bodies.

This 3-hr workshop aims to equip you with information around workstation setups and movements that help you regain and maintain the physical mobility to better support your body while working. Particularly catering for people engaged in desk work, it suits bodies of all kinds and engaged in all levels of physical activity.

It will guide you through: biomechanics and the impacts of desk work; the differences between ‘exercise’ and movement; practical solutions for creating a more dynamic workspace at home; specific, adaptable mobility practices to support your body at work; and ideas for how to include more movement in your day to day.
