We are hearing a lot lately about the ill effects of sitting for long hours.
There are changes in our muscles & even our internal systems that result from sitting at our desks, commuting to work, etc.

Even if you exercise regularly, don’t consider yourself to be out of shape, and are not overweight, chances are high that you are feeling the effects of sitting. We are sitting too long at our desk, in our cars & on our sofas. Your hip flexors and hamstrings shorten and tighten, while the muscles that support your spine become weak and stiff.
Strong, flexible hip, abdominal, and back muscles are the key to recovery from and prevention of low back strain.

This 1 hour class includes both strengthening and stretching exercises for these important muscle groups. You will also learn simple stretching and strengthening exercises to bring back to your desk to combat the effects of prolonged sitting.
price is $12 offered by Pilates instructor Connie Festo Lafond
