Yoga to combat sitting all day at work

“Sitting is the new smoking.”   Sounds extreme but perhaps we shouldn’t laugh it off quite so quickly.

The Conversation reports that “Back pain is the single leading cause of disability in the world. In the US, four out of every five people experience back pain at some point in their life. In the UK, back pain is one of the most common reasons for visits to the doctor, and missed work. In fact, absence from work due to back problems costs British employers more than £3 billion every year.” 

The Huffington Post reports that “…research links a highly sedentary lifestyle with a shorter life span and increased risk of chronic diseases like heart disease and diabetes, among other serious health problems.”  

Multiple research papers on this topic find the same thing. Sitting too much can have a negative effect on your health. When you add up all the hours that we spend sitting at work and the time spent commuting and sitting at home and add to that the amount of time spent with our heads looking down at a mobile phone, is it any wonder that our spines become misaligned and sore?
