Resilience in the Digital Age
Stress affects busy professionals in multiple ways; the continuous use of technology, a sedentary lifestyle and the lack of deep rest aggravate these issues, which in some cases become chronic. Their posture suffers from spending long hours at (often) imperfect work stations; symptoms such as carpal tunnel syndrome, a stiff neck and back due to long hours at the computer are very common, as are poor flexibility, reduced range of motion, unwanted weight gain and a slow metabolism.
This three-part series is interactive and practical. Gabriela Bocanete introduces a series of powerful yoga techniques that, if practised regularly, can boost the levels of fitness, energy, and wellbeing of professionals, while cleansing and improving the functioning of their internal organs.
