With an increasing number of individuals spending long hours at their desks and the rise of computer-related injuries, ergonomics has become more important than ever. In this workshop, we will discuss what ergonomics is, how it can benefit you, and techniques you can use to improve your posture and reduce the risk of injury. We will also provide you with practical tips that you can implement in your daily routine at work. Whether you’re an office worker or just someone looking to improve their posture, this workshop is for you. Let’s get started!
