We sit for many hours each day for weeks and years at a time. How did we come to sit? How do we leave sitting to stand and walk? We will explore and expand our capacity for comfortable sitting. We will touch on a number of ways to sit, delving into the most common sitting positions in some depth. By the end of the workshop, you will have discovered more options for sitting with ease, and have less discomfort in your everyday life and work.
