Video Clip Demonstrates Use Of Balance Ball To Improve Posture and Reduce Bodily Tension Whilst Working On Your Computer


Hi folks,

I spend a lot of time writing, and thus typing on my computer. If I become too involved, and work without a break for an hour or so, my upper body tightens up and I develop serious tension in my neck, rotator cuffs and forearms. I also tend to slump into poor posture, which leads to a tight lower back. None of this is good for my sport, so today Tara, my Pilates, Gyrokinesis and Gyrotonic teacher, gave me a lesson on use of the balance ball to counteract such bad habits.

This approach also tones your core. A balance ball provides inexpensive seating, whilst being effective for a wide range of exercises for better health and improved race performance. A great investment, and thanks for the lesson Tara.
