The fact is that the majority of our population is now at a computer, desk, or chair for the better part of their day. The negative results of being seated are staggering and our workforce is in a crisis.The primary focus of the book is to learn exercises that show how strengthening the core and trunk helps the seated professional sit upright, with a strong spine and long back, ultimately working more comfortably and effectively. It is important to stretch and exercise but mostly, keep moving throughout your day! Mind Your Body: Pilates for the Seated Professional is an exercise book that shows the positive effects of mindful movement. It is much more than a fitness routine; it is a way to create a more conscious and responsive life. Readers learn that mindfully living your best life enhances energy and decreases stress. The ultimate goal is a balanced body and mind. How can you not love that!
